We ate here a couple of times on our stay. It was an easy bike ride or drive from our house in Watercolor. It was great to be able to wander off the beach and have a nice meal. They also have kid-friendly food, which...More

Went into their taco bar. Horrible food horrible service. I understand the higher prices associated with the location. But if you’re gonna charge that much at least make it edible.

Great view with good food. Smoked tuna dip was awesome. The staff is friendly and helpful. The drink menu has refreshing choices and a good happy hour menu.

I imagine this establishment could only sustain in a tourist town. I don't imagine very many repeat customers. Plated meals were small but tasted okay. The menu is limited and substitutions are prohibited. Don't expect warm bread or a side more than a few weeds...More

Opens at 8am...service is quick, but you have time to enjoy the view. Food is very good! It's nice to have quality food AND the view. Sweet Potato Pancakes are excellent, as are traditional breakfast items. Don't forget the Mimosa!
