Only con: the wait. Sometimes you have to wait an hour or so. But they have things you can do while waiting like Pac man or a carousel horse. It is worth the wait, and this is coming from someone w no patience to wait...More

My husband and I decided to go here because it was crowded. We figured the food must be really good. We had about a 20 minute wait at the bar. Everyone was very friendly and the food was really good.

This place was very touristy, which I’m sure most places on the boardwalk are. I would’ve preferred to check out Elliot’s, but was outvoted. The food was good, don’t get me wrong, it just wasn’t a place where the locals probably go.
