Get a table on the beach! Great setting and the food is excellent! Valet Parking or municipal parking lot very near. You can walk throughout Lauderdale by the Sea and visit many shops!

Enjoyed the seafood and live music sitting outside on a Saturday night. The seafood Alfredo was excellent. We had a nice view of the town plaza. Try the Bimini bread for just $2!
