Consistently slow service over the last half dozen times I've been here. Servers are reasonably friendly when they get around to waiting on you, but I just waited at least 15 minutes for someone to notice that I sat at a table. So why stay? The drinks are good, and it has a nice view of the beach and Boardwalk.... More

Very good food, can be a bit pricey for appetizers and salads, but if you stick with whole entrees there is plenty of food for your money.
