I had the crab and asparagus omelette! It was delicious. The kids had the silver dollar pancakes and sausage and they loved it. The portions were big and the customer service was excellent.

My wife chose Splashes for our anniversary dinner, primarily based on its oceanfront views. In many cases restaurants with great views seem to have only mediocre food. Not only were both the views and food superb, but the service was also excellent - not overbearing...More

Hmm. That's really "iffy". I'd say no. I'm sure you can make it work, but I wouldn't think it'd be ideal.
