Great view of the ocean, great music and Caribbean vibe. Food was satisfying. Would go again in a heart beat.

Great place to watch the sun go down and have a drink or two, a bite to eat and family time. Get there a little early if you have a group. Seating is minimum.

No, I don't believe you can. They are allowed on the beach though and there is a picnic table on the right before you walk into Fish Heads that people have gotten carry out and sat and ate with their dogs there.
