Didn’t know anything about this place except that it was the halfway mark of our trip. Loved it... the seafood platter and fish tacos were superb. The beach setting felt just right.

This is directly on the beach. Breakfast you can have all you can eat pancakes, they were good, but nothing to rave about. Its like going to a pool concession stand only the food is much better than that.

My husband and I always enjoy a visit here where we can enjoy some delicious fried clam strips and fish tacos on the beach. Insider tip: buy a souvenir beer glass and get cheap refills for life ($3.99 domestic, $4.99 craft and imports).

One other thing to keep in mind - if you choose to get the "all you can eat" pancakes, there is a cutoff time after which they don't make any more pancakes. You can go to the pancake window a few minutes before the cutoff... More
