We stop in here for lunch after church on Sundays. The service has always been good and the food too. They are also hosting different contest like "Best swings on the shore" and other events too. The decorations everywhere inside are neat too. Family friendly

If you can only try one thing while here, I recommend the most moist wings ever, but of course everything else our group had was great also. If in the area, it is worth a stop.

We found a very limited menu. If you are going to lay in hammocks, play wormhole, drink beer & eat burgers and wings, this is your place. We were surprised to not even find a local fish sandwich, just tilapia, so near beach resorts. Adequate...More
