The first day we went we couldn't get outside seating, but it rained so that was ok. But the food was so good we went back a couple days later for lunch outside and again it was excellent! And right on the ocean!

They serve brunch until 1:00pm and refuse to put your order in before that time. Sat down at 12:50pm, waitress put our order in at about 1:30pm. Ordered flounder, came out with skin on it, gross. The cauliflower was cold and onion rings were greasy...More

Took 1hr 45 min to get our food and they were not busy. Burgers were charred black (Hockey Puck hard and the same color) Only good thing was the onion rings. Our server tried hard but everyone else was a total failure.More
