This restaurant really was awesome, food, service and view included! We enjoyed our meals, the prices weren't crazy especially when considering the location. Right on he pier you can sit and watch the waves during dinner. What's better!? We would definitely return.

We were fortunate to get seating in the shades seats facing the beach on a very warm April day. So nice to people watch on the pier and watch the dolphins swimming close to the pier. Lunch was very good and large portions.
