Great food. We had pizza, breadsticks, hamburgers, and tator tots. Yum! We've really struggled this vacation with finding decent places to eat. Great service! Definitely recommend and will return:

We were looking for somewhere to eat and we came across a you tube video for this place so we tried it out. When we were there it was not busy. Some of the menu items were unique and others were your usual. The Dune climb looked great, it had a mound of fries on an open face hamburger. We ordered "pre-existing conditions" This was a little over the top. Less would have been better. I would not order that again. The kids got mac and cheese and they enjoyed it (looked like Kraft). One little guy got pizza sticks and they only had 2 of them. Luckily he was our light luncher because that did not seem like enough. They had a special root beer on tap that was very good.

This was a nice find, if we came, here again, we would eat here.

Great local place with good pizza and great drinks. Perfect spot to stop and relax after a hot day on the dunes.

Good place for a beer or cold drink after a day hiking or at the beach. Sports bar feel inside with pool tables and pinball machines. Pizza is solid.

Stopped here with family for lunch. The service was good as were the pizzas. Prices like everything in this area are a bit much.
