Great location beside pier with lots of outside seating. Got fast service from friendly and funny server. Ordered the broiled fish and shrimp for around $14, which was good. We had to go inside because of rain, which is also nice.

Located just on the beach, this place serves some yummy food. We had the famous beach bread and coconut shrimps along with a mango drink. Shrimps were fresh and crunchy. Bread was yummy.Unfortunately we could only eat appetizers as we were full due to breakfast. Will surely visit this place again.

The best part of this restaurant is that you can literally walk right off the beach into it. Eat outside if you can -- very nice patio although the furniture is typical plastic beach furniture. We went for a long walk on the beach and stopped here for supper. We had good service with a friendly and helpful server. Menu... More

We stopped in for drinks & appetizers. Typical beach restaurant. Happy hour deals are great. View of beach & pier are great. We had queso & stuffed mushrooms, both were excellent. Service was also very good. We will return

We had dinner here the night of the super moon. The sunset view was beautiful. The live music wasn't over powering. The service was great, food was good. Clam strips were huge and the fish was good. Shrimp was a little small and over cooked with little flavor. Drinks were fabulous! Over all a good dining experience that I would... More

This is right by the pier, with outside seating and a great view of the sunset. Right on the beach, live music but he ended by about 5 pm and then no music. Food was very good and plenty of it. Drinks were good and our server Lindsey did a great job. Great place for people watching too.

Great outdoor dinning on the water front pier. But don't feed the birds because it's a $100 fine. Great place to walk up the beach for a bite to eat or enjoy a fresh int beverage.

Setting the fishing pier is fabulous. Great for sunsets or people watching. Food is inconsistent. Seafood (usually shrimp dishes) has been good, but also poor (dried out fish sandwich).
