There is a good bar selection with a number of local brews to try. The restaurant was not busy during our visit but our server was uninterested and inattentive which detracted from the experience. If this is the norm, a visit during the high season...More

Casual dining. We had the cheeseburgers and they were done just right. Happy hour in season can be hectic, but a great place for a beer and a burger.

Great place to go after the beach if you are looking to cool off. If you go at Happy Hour it is not crowded and the apps are delicious!

We stopped in around 3:30-4 for late lunch early dinner. Food was pretty good and service was good too. Nothing really special but a good place to stop and eat. We didn't need a reservation.
