This seaside deck, casual dining/drinking spot is the number one reason to stay in Palmetto Dunes versus another plantation. Only those with a pass get to feast on grilled fish tacos, and specialty cocktails. Service with a smile from the friendly staff!

Just simple sandwiches. But right on the ocean. Food prices are a value (cheap) for the island. I would eat here again.
