Went for lunch, hubby enjoyed the fish while I just wanted a good hamburger for a change. I was not disappointed! The burger is located to the far right bottom on the chalk board that some may miss. I say this as my sister on her last visit went minimum 5 times and never saw it!

Easy walk from Sheraton. Tables in the sand and great sunset view. Service is not good. A Molcajetes is a lava rock that cooks your choice of meat w melted cheese and is fantastic. We go here just for these.

Our lunches were fine, but I think the big attraction here is the location. A nice part of the beach without so many beach vendors. I had the Chunky Salad with shrimp which was pretty good. Hubby had the coconut shrimp which he thought were a little over cooked. Not a bad place for lunch or drinks, though not a... More

First off, I want to go through my full and complete disclaimer: I am an older, overweight male from the upper Midwest of the U.S. I like my food both simple and plentiful, as I am a plain meat and potatoes guy. I don't like food smothered or covered in sauces, gravy, or moles. My desire is to taste the... More

A pleasant place for a drink, especially good for viewing the magnificent sunsets over the bay. We did not have a meal but sat both in the restaurant and at a table on the beach and visited with friends and watched the sun set on the bay.

The shrimp were good but not plentiful and the Caesar salad lacked a good dressing. The prices are a bit above average for the area. Service was very good. Drinks a bit higher than average also. Very busy on Saturday night,so maybe we ordered the wrong dish. I expected a bit more for the price you pay. It is a... More
