Went here on a Saturday night for Happy Hour 15 minutes after the place opened and it was already jammed so be advised. Managed to snare one seat at the bar which my supervisor took and I stood which felt good after spending 6 hours in the drivers seat. Laura the bartender is a wiz as well as gracious and... More

This place fills up fast, so reservations are a must. Bar seating is limited, but you don't need a reservation.

I agree with other reviews i would go back for drinks and tapas. The dinner was ok, but not knock your socks off. Ribeye was good but standard, the filet was... More

This restaurant has the perfect location to watch a beautiful sunset. They open at 5 PM, and usually people line up at the door before opening. They have a happy hour, but everything on their Happy Hour menu is fried, high carb/high cholesterol. I ordered the pok chops with some apple relish from the main menu. The food came out... More

Set with far reaching views across the beach and ocean this worth a detour ! Bar is friendly with a mix of tourist and locals and food is good! A lovely experience especially before sunset.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a lovely dinner here. From being seated in a perfect place for viewing the sunset to the luscious dessert we had to share because we were so full of the other amazing courses, this meal was declared one of the best we had shared in our many years together. Delicious chowder, unbelievable... More
