The food was fantastic and the view one of the best in the area. The salad that accompanied our meal was packed with local ingredients which were extremely fresh and delicious. The waiter staff...

Fresh food, friendly environment and good pricing. Pick your own size burger up to 2 pounds! I had a veggie bowl by order alacarte beans. Rice, avocado, and salsa. Very fresh. The mint lemonade was nice and refreshing.

Our meals were good portions and flavor although nothing special for the price. The waiter tried to serve beer that we didn't order and seemed a little pushy, but the overall service was fine.

My husband and I split the hamburger because it's huge and it was delicious and big enough for two. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. We loved the open-air atmosphere and the ocean view was fabulous! We purchased a bottle of the jalapeno sauce that the restaurant serves and sells. Very spicy with a great flavor!
