Interesting restaurant right on the beach. Ask to sit outside for the view. We stopped here for appetizers and drinks. All were tasty - grouper bites, fried green tomatoes and nachos. The best was roasted feta - Yummy!

The title pretty much sums it up...amazing location and cool setting but they either seem to hire the worst servers, management is lacking or they really just don't care. On my last visit, I ordered a cheese burger...after 40 minutes I got a cold burger...More
