Fantastic place to eat whether you sit inside or out, though I do prefer out. Their shrimp, mac&cheese and key lime pie are delicious!

Good burgers and great happy hour with decent selection of beers on tap. Bar tenders are always friendly. It's not on the beach, but just a block away. I'd go for the great atmosphere to watch a game and have a pint. Brings friends too!
