Visited here on my birthday, the location is fabulous - almost on the beach. There was a local band playing so had music to accompany a great plate of food. My partner said the Crab was amazing! Really enjoyed my brief visit here.

I have been going to this family-owned restaurant for at least 20 years. Everything is great but my favorite of all is the high-stacked crab sandwich with avocado! The ocean view is fabulous specially at sunset. Friendly, attentive servers.
