Chef Ken and Co make a phenomenal breakfast! Lunch and dinner are also very good, but we tend to come for breakfast. The service is fantastic - the owner Rob Fishman - and his staff of managers really train their servers to look after customers. Most restaurants do not train staff sufficiently - even the summer kids here have to pass a test on service in order to get a job. Everyone on the waitstaff and management staff without exception try to give great service.

Now for the food - best pancakes around, excellent omelettes - I love Ken's nova scotia egg dish when it is on the menu. Dinner has a great selection - Ken is professionally trained and he tries to infuse his own touches in to the dishes. Lunch is very good - but more standard - perfect for when you are coming off of the beach. The takeout window is also a great option.

The atmosphere - you are literally above the sand. Great view of the ocean. The renovation post-Sandy has made is light, airy and open. The fish prints representing Rob's parents are a very pretty and sentimental touch.

Go - you won't be disappointed!

Our B&B owner made reservations for us - a key point during the summer crush. We got a table with good views of the boardwalk and beach. The menu is mainly inventive seafood dishes with some staples. My wife had a mango drizzled Mahi Mahi, I went for the Dover sole Francaise over linguine.
The service is fast and unobtrusive. BYOB and relax. The dessert tray and espresso make a fine end to the evening.

We were late to get in for breakfast (can't even line up for a table past 11am). We went back for a great lunch:) Four of us ordered two Ahi Tune Flatbread ($14), Flounder burger ($12) and vegetable burger ($10). They were fresh and good. Staff were friendly and efficient. You can't beat to sit in a nice place by the beach with ocean breeze. 5 stars!

The food just screams average. The descriptions sound much better than what you really get. For example under Starters, we had the Baby Back Ribs. They aren't sold buy the full or half rack. They're sold by full or half "order." A full "order" is half a rack. The Mardi Gras Crevette tasted like it was pre-made and not fresh. We wouldn't try again... Too many other places to eat at.
