I have on several occasions visited the Crysral Beach Restaurant and have never been disappointed. Imagine... everything you order is made fresh and you get lots of it and its so tastey!!! I highly recommend the turkey sandwich. Here is a place with amazing food and a really cool staff...check them out soon!!!

Great menu and awsome service. Gas bar and store next door is also a great place to grab some goodies and fill up.
