Great restaurant on the beach. Large portions of really good food. I had the oatmeal supreme, best I've ever had. My husband had French toast special and we shared because it was too much for one! Enjoy

Go for the location. Average food, but you can't beat the casual location. Always surfers and bikers. Don't get me wrong, food is good, but not exceptional. Sit outside and enjoy view. Best for breakfast.

They have pasta and Mexican food. Good for a long and lazy "chat and visit" restaurant. The view never gets old. The laid back atmosphere is very relaxing the food is a plus.

I've seen this place go through several owners, great fish & chips! Hours are kinda funky, hard to remember! Bloody Mary's need some work! It's on the sand at the rivers end! Fun!

We went here to meet a family member while on a trip to the area. The food was just OK (kinda mixed reviews: fish tacos good, cheese plate mediocre, with some odd sausage that appeared inedible and cucumbers, and calamari strips decent) , the service...More
