We enjoyed the tasty grilled chicken here, the side orders and also the chicken sandwiches for lunch on a couple of occasions. Simple setting, tasty food and friendly staff.

The restaurant is across the street from Sunset Plaza and an escape from restaurant food in exchange for dining on the ocean-view room balcony with a beer from the store on the corner.
