I love this place. It's unique, friendly, cozy, and clean. The food is excellent and made with love and you can hear the waves crashing from the restaurant. What is better than that?❤️ the burger deserve 5 stars ! Definitely worth it.

I am always looking for a restaurant to lunch with Mom, and went in late September. Wonderfully beachy and friendly. Especially liked the turkey/avocado sandwich. Home cooking in a cozy place. Mom loved it too.

Today was our second visit here. We sat outside where we could hear the waves crashing. While waiting for our food, we scanned the outside patio area and it is dismal. Two nails would have fixed an adjoining patio bench (with a dragging support). Weeds...More
