All fried, some overdone. Not sure how the ratings are so high for this place. Would not return.. Not at all impressed.

I believe the dining experience here is amplified by the experience of dining out over the ocean with a fresh breeze. It's a laid back jointwith good quick bite seafood fare. Get a fish sandwich and gave a beer on a warm, sunny day.

I had the swordfish taco. It was quite tasty. We also had sliders, fish and chips, clam chowder, and onion rings. It was all good. As an added bonus we were tested to a fantastic sunset.

Loved the food for years but the restaurant sold. The food is still good but last week we ate there and they were playing vile rap music with foul language. Others our older age we're upset as well. Our children and grandchildren loved this restaurant...More
