I went there with my family ( 12 of us) and were told we could not split the check even though we all had credit cards. When we asked if we could just sit separately the staff felt it was too much trouble and basically...More

Ok, First of all, I love it when the staff introduces themselves and says what can i get you. Had not been there two minutes, at the bar, somewhat busy. They never wrote a thing down, never missed a beat, service exceeded any Tiki Bar,...More

The food was just ok for the price. I guess you pay for the view, which was fantastic. The drinks were ok, but very weak. Do not confuse this restaurant with the one attached to it. They do not accept coupons. We did get to...More

Way over-priced for greasy fried food. You can't beat the view, you are staring at the ocean. But with so many other choices for food, go somewhere else and then go for a walk on the beach and star at the ocean. Very grumpy hostess...More
