It was average, I was expecting more because of the rating of 4.5 stars by the other people. I guess if I were going out drinking and wanted a snack it would have been the place. Very crowded .

We ate upstairs - downstairs looked a little dull.. Food was ok, fish and chips and a chicken sandwich (huge). Nice atmosphere and the staff are great.This is a very good place to go after a day on the beach.

Great location, great beach atmosphere and excellent food. Fried tuna bites were incredible...and the cucumber wasabi sauce can't be beat. You won't be dissapointed. Great draft beer selection too.

We were walking by and a couple said this is the best place to eat, they were right! Largest oysters ever and the horseradish was outstanding! Tried the ahi tuna nachos were great, a meal in themselves! A must for a quick stop or dinner! Beer was cold and on sale too!
