Fast and friendly. Selina was there when we needed her and out of the way when we didn't. She was good at recommending food and her recommendations were spot on. Delicious! We sat outside and it was fun to watch the people go by.

Love this place. Food is fabulous and great atmosphere! Service was a little slow but they seem to get pretty busy. Right off the boardwalk next to the pier. Parking is a bit hard to find during the busy season.
