Higher priced location right on the ocean. Dinner was very expensive. There were about 10 main dinner items. All chef prepared and somewhat smaller portions. Good service. Great happy hour

I believe they do, and Thursday night is the "Heaton Burger" night, which is the best hamburger in town that we've found. Guinness for $5.00 as well, always a hit with me.

Fresh from the Atlantic, our dinner menu includes highlights like local tuna sashimi, grilled cobia with roasted lemon-butter, and sweet potato clam chowder. Save room for a slice of decadent key-lime cheesecake or a scoop of house-made seasonal ice cream.
