We felt right at home when we walked in. The staff was all very friendly. We were seated on the patio where we could watch the beach goers and the TV. We both enjoyed our meal and plan to go back.

We stopped here on our first night. Very casual atmosphere. Nice covered deck area, but it was too hot, so we ate indoors. Our server Trent was fabulous! Very friendly, made good recommendations. We all chose seafood items, which were fresh and tasty. Sadly, we...More

Visited this little place with some friends from the UK. I'm quite reluctant to eat "British" meals in foreign countries but the Fish & Chips here were pretty good. There were 5 of us in total and not a bad meal all round we all...More
