Our family of 4 was in and out of the restaurant in 50 minutes! On a Saturday evening. We enjoyed the lobster topped grouper and the crab/shrimp pasta. Our kids enjoyed the frisbeelates from their meals too. Great fast service that is easy to recommend.

Nice brunch spot with water views. Very busy on the weekends. They have bottomless drink options during Saturday’s and Sunday brunch along with live music. Food was ok.

It has a view of the ocean, but you will not get a good quality dinner there, and therefore it will kill the romance. You would be better served by going to the Fishhouse or Peg leg Pete’s. They both have views of the ocean... More
