Great views from this balcony. Good service. My wife and I had the hamachi and tunas appetizers. Fantastic - particularly the hamachi. Daughter had grilled cheese and fries. Very good too. Highly recommend it.

Outside bar with a great view of the ocean. Enjoy my stay and this bar in particular. It was windy most of the times I went there but they have heaters and it is worth it for the view.

The Seafood is better than average but the steak is just average, actually we all agreed that streak is better at Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse but who really goes to the beach to eat steak.

You cant beat the view of the Pacific Ocean, ask for table #7 which has the best view at sunset.
