Was very busy but worth the wait! French fries with sriracha sea salt and smoked paprika with bang bang sauce was a little spicy but super tasty. Tomato Basil soup was best I’ve had at a restaurant. Grilled Cheese with Fontina was super good also....More

A little off the beaten path, but well worth discovering. Seating is limited so a reservation is recommended. Excellent food, extensive wine selection and daily made desserts. Casual, not beach attire recommended. Excellent Summer Sangria. Highly recommend.
