Breakfast was very good and great service by Jessy. 20% discount for being a guest of the hotel is actually added back as a service fee so in reality no discount. The owner should not be able to advertise the discount. Food was good.

Nice place on the Ocean Drive boardwalk.Two-for-one beers, but I still think a 19$ burger should be better.
