Enjoy eating there often. The food is good and the staff is friendly. There is a great view of the ocean and the atmosphere is relaxed, but still a nice restaurant. Great place for date night.

Wonderful experience. Right on the oceanfront- beautiful view. Delicious food. I opted for the scallops and they were absolutely succulent. Their signature drink - the Orange Crush- is a must try with fresh squeezed orange juice.
