We loved eating at Southern Tide outside overlooking the ocean. The setting was beautiful. There are lots of options for kids and adults. You can walk down to the beach while you are waiting for your food.

Beautiful view! Good food and very creative cocktails. What a lovely place to walk to when staying at the Cloisters- on the property- across the street from the main building.
