I've been going to SSI for over 20 years and have always stopped in at least once for breakfast at the Sandcastle. Reliably good food, great service, very laid back and beach casual. One of those "neighborhood" places that everybody has loved for years.

My daughter and I went here for lunch. The portions were good and the food was great. The price was just right. We sat on the patio and people watched. It was a beautiful day to sit outside.
