Really good location - good food and ambience. You can eat with toes in the sand or on the deck to watch the sun go down over a cocktail. Worth a visit.

My boyfriend and I stopped in after the beach and were happy with the band and delicious margaritas. Fish tacos with grouper were tasty. My side of fruit was fresh.
