If you only eat one burger in the area, make it this one. When you come in or onto the patio, you fill out a little slip of paper to place your order. I got the 8 oz burger with bacon. It comes with fries...More

PTS has hand cut french fries that are truly addicting. Add fresh made to order burgers and beer specials and you have a winner. Their chicken sandwich is also fantastic. Vegetarian in your group? No worries! They have salads, black bean burgers and veggie burgers....More

Your restaurant came up in a gluten free restaurant search. Do you have a dedicated area for gluten free? If not, can you suggest a restaurant that does? My grandson has really bad celiac and it is difficult to eat out. Doing a beach day trip with him and would love to give him a treat by taking him out to eat. Thanks. Susan
