Pitched up early evening and was immediately seated outside, much to the delight of my stroppy toddler who promptly set off for the beach a few steps away. We were offered a high chair but didn't need one and iced water was given to us...More

Love this place. A little overpriced on some items but the location and beach feel cant be beat. Expansive menu covers most tastes. The outdoor tiki bar is great. Good mix of tourists and locals. Lots of tvs. Highly recommend to visit

Fun place along the beach. Big variety of beer on tap. Small gift shop in the front. Good homemade potato chips. Burger was good and so were the chicken nachos.

Not sure. We always enjoyed the food here. Breakfast on Saturday with the young man playing music was especially good. Plus dinner on a few occasions. Shame the other people did not find it so good.

I don't know. You would have to call the restaurant and ask them. I am sure you could find the phone number with a google search.
