so fun to see people gather and meet new friends and have drinks at the bar and pick nick tables. Elderly man asked me if I could help him figure out his tab. So, I asked him how much to tip? I own a restaurant and was curious what he would say. When he told me I said that's to... More

We ate dinner here for a post wedding vow renewal for a friend. Not sure if they were understaffed but husband and I ordered our fish/grouper dinner that looked like and tasted like tilapia. Very disappointed. It took a long time about an hour just to get our order. Prior we were downstairs to order drinks (wine and pina colada)... More

Couldn't beat the ocean view, but the food was average to below average. If you like grease, this is the place for you. Most was bland at best. We had the fish, shrimp and salad. Wouldn't go back.

The best this place has going for it is it's location..fronting the beach with a nice view. Thats where the good experience ends. Food ordered was under portioned and poorly presented. My shrimp tacos looked more like pancakes with lettuce. We also ordered a steak entree and was served plastic forks and knifes on paper plates. Could not cut the... More

Stayed in Seascape for a week with friends and our spot on the beach was just below Whale's Tail. We got drinks and food there most days. The smoked tuna dip is so good. Could eat it everyday! Laidback atmosphere and amazing views.

Very casual restaurant right on the beach across from Seascape. The drinks are good, but the food is average. Fish tacos ($11.29) and combo munchies ($14.95 ... fried fish, shrimp, fries). There is also a beach bar on the lower level.

This restaurant/bar is not going to impress you with its product. The only good thing about this place is the actual location. They typically have people working there who English is their second language and it is not very clean. Their food is second-rate. Their Draught beer is questionable at best. Let alone the mixed drinks.
