Wanted to eat on the beach and watch the fireworks. The food was terrible. I had fajitas that were so bland. This is definitely a party place for college kids not a family place. You can see the fireworks farther down the beach and enjoy!!

Absolute perfect mix of "Tex-Mex" and seafood. Had a problem with one staff member, but everyone has their bad days. Everyone and everything else here is amazing. The bar is overlooking the beach, so you have a great view of the ocean while enjoying a...More
