From the reviews, I expected more. Really nothing more than a burger shack with a lot of outdoor seating (of limited value on a cool and foggy evening). Burger was nothing to complain about, but also nothing to make any effort to repeat.

Come here as soon as it opens if you want to get a seat on the deck overlooking the ocean. The salmon sandwich is beyond compare on a fresh bun with tomato onion and homemade tartar sauce. You will experience a little but of heaven

Think of a catered beach side picnic and you'll understand this well known Summerland restaurant. There are sand boxes for the kiddies and picnic tables for everyone. Aside from the fresh food there is also beer and wine--what ,more could you ask for? The only...More
