Go there @ sunset,it has couple floors and rooftop is best view. Gets crowded but can also eat downstairs inside. Right on the main road.. Across from Town square with more eating and shopping.

Fun atmosphere. Great view of the beach. Food is simple but fabulous. From tuna dip to kobi sandwich to chicken salad no complaints!! Beer available too. In an adorable and fun area. Reasonable prices.

Lunch overlooking the Gulf and great food. What more could you ask for? Nice deck and well positioned umbrellas for needed shade were complemented by great service and good food.
