This beautifully located restaurant sits directly on the beach. You can choose inside or patio dining (I highly recommend the patio!) The food is plentiful, beautifully prepared and delishious. This is not McDs, and while it is acceptable for children, it better suits adults.
Because this restaurant is a local favorite and shares beach access, parking is premium.
We try to go at least once when we visit the SB area.

We went very early on a Saturday morning in late October. It was so relaxing to sit outside (beneath a heater) and watch the families playing on the beach. The breakfast choices were varied enough for all preferences and the cappuccinos tasted extra good in the fresh air. After breakfast we walked along the beach for about an hour.

Hard to beat this combination... an excellent breakfast of eggs benedict, very good coffee, and open patio looking over the beach. Friendly service. This place has buzz!

You will not find a restaurant located directly on the beach like this. They do not take reservations on the weekends, so plan on a 1-2 hour wait even in the fall. I can imagine that in the summer it is much longer. i was impressed and pleasantly surprised they had a couple of vegan options. I had a tofu dish that was quite good. The service is outstanding and they don't rush you. I liked this place!

We had a delicious outdoor brunch at Hendry's. All the food was fresh, flavorful and delightfully plated. Service was great. Wish I hadn't been driving because the Blood Mary's look devine.
