Food is perfectly respectable although it's bar food. There are a few healthy options. Volleyball leagues are fun to watch. Very relaxed and very casual.

We eat here often, at least once a week when we go to watch our daughter play volley ball. Food is good, and it is very casual.

While visiting family we had a late lunch today here. Very impressed with my blackened grouper sandwich and my wife loved her blackened Mahi sandwich too. The kids ate all their food and enjoyed watching some volleyball games. We will definitely come back again.

The food was very good especially the barbecue. Carolina style barbeque sauce. However, the service was horrible. Regulars' table were checked often but ours only a few times. They would have gotten a 5 if the service had been better.
