We hit this spot every year while waiting for our beach house to be ready. We are able to get food and drinks while the kids get their first taste of beach again.

Get there early if you want a table for sunset. But they have a walk-up bar for drinks and the beach area is beautiful. If you are in that area on the beach also a great place to go for lunch.

Our server was amazing. After being turned away from the Waterfront we arrived just before close. Even though it was late in the service and I am sure she was tired, she took great care of us. Thank you, Marybeth!
