Had a great Bloody Mary and lunch at this bar/restaurant. No kids, 21 and over. Order your drinks and food at the bar. Fish tacos and calamari and chips were big helpings and delicious. No frills but worth the stop.

You can't get better Nachos and the price is great - about $7 (no meat at this price). It's fun to sit outside and look at the ocean and people watch while eating your Nachos. My... More

We have been here several times and only for lunch. We love to sit outside and enjoy the views of the pier and the ocean. There is always a great selection of beers on tap and plenty of choices of affordable food. The menu has changed over the years and missed the flatbreads they used to have. This last trip... More

One of the best locations you will find to hang out drinking and people watching. The live bands are also very good as well.

Stopped in for lunch with a few friends. We found this to be a delightful bar/restaurant. We sat inside, but they have a large patio area in front. All areas have a great view of the ocean and beach area. We found that the food was very good. The sandwiches were very ;large and came with french fries, I enjoyed... More

We got a seat right on the 'boardwalk' and watched the world go by while drinking a beer and eating a bite on a beautiful sunny summer afternoon. They have a full bar so no matter what you want, they can fix you up. There was a decent selection of beers on draft too. They menu is small with bar... More
