We happened on this place - no queues after our golf. what a great welcome! The food was excellent - I had coconut shrimp and my husband had the Alaskan Snow Crab Legs - all really good and we loved the ambience of the place right on the beach. Can't recommend highly enough

The seafood is okay, not outstanding. I was disappointed, because I had heard good things. Go to Brett's.

Enjoyed a dinner at the bar, lots of people to talk with and of course the car auction was on so very busy all over town. We enjoyed fresh crab appetizers, cold beer and our mains were excellent. Would go back again and again....

Found a three inch piece of metal, explained to be a scrub pad piece on our grandsons french fries. Scary. He could have cut his mouth or swallowed this causing a lot of harm. Too bad the owner only offers .."don't know what to say...sorry". Besides this the meals where less than average. Service and presentation really off. My guess... More

A so-so meal that had a metal piece of a metal scouring pad embedded within the french fries that my grandson almost ate. Upon showing the metal fragment to the owner, he immediately knew what the metal fragment was and said "so sorry, it happens during the cleaning process". Very unprofessional response to say the least for a family run... More
