We're so pleased you enjoyed our traditional Eggs Benedict! Try the BLT version next time (thick-cut bacon, real lobster meat, and fresh tomato). Yum!!! Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with other Trip Advisor readers. We sure appreciate it!!

This restaurant has the best beach views! The food is fresh and well presented. Service is good. Especially like the blackened shrimp tacos and tortilla soup. Their grilled red snapper is the best.More

We walked down the beach to eat breakfast at this restaurant and were not disappointed. Salmon eggs Benedict, pancakes, Corned Beef Hash - all were great. All seating is outside, but covered with fans. Great view of the beach.

Just ok, fish was better than the shrimp, salads ok not really impressive and a little pricey, view of the ocean was the best part
