Service was fantastic. Breakfast was very good, especially the Egg White Burrito. Atmosphere was easy going. Pretty cool place. Not very spacious however matches up well with the other small eateries up and down the beach. Will definitely be back.

Lunch at Eat Chow is great. The food is excellent, those sweet potatoe fries - yum. The sandwiches are large and the ingrediants fresh. There are three separate places to sit, outside, main restaurant and the inside next to the store. We sat inside next...More
