One of wife and my favorite lunch spots. Get to watch the waves and have a light lunch with plenty of sea breeze. I'd rather keep it to ourselves .... 🤐

Right on the beach, but with a pool. Good selection of beers and the bar food was better than expected. We had wings and a cheeseburger.

Cool place. Cheap food and great daily specials. A burger and a beer for $5.00 They have a pool in the middle surrounded by a upper deck to view the ocean. Great VALUE.
