Had a great lunch here. We chose this place because of the patio seating with a great view of the beach and also the wonderful smell of seafood on their grill. We ordered beers, grilled jumbo shrimp, grilled Mahi topped with shrimp, and chicken quesadillas....More

Yes it’s a great location, but so are some other restaurant along this strip, over looking a fantastic beach. My first gripe is the food / beer looks a bit pricey- but then when they add 10% service charge and then 13% some other tax...More

Stopped by here unexpectedly for lunch and had a great experience. If I would have read the reviews first I would not have gone. But, we had good service, delicious margaritas, and we all enjoyed our meals. Nice atmosphere as well!
