This is a nice restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy the sunset. The food is good and there are plenty of dishes on the menu. We had burgers, seafood pasta, chicken fingers and fish tacos and everyone was happy.

Loved watching the Dolphins while we dined. A little pricey but make sure to listen to the specials. The swordfish was amazing and so was the salmon. Kids menu is good. Friendly waitress and good overall service.

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.

Unfortunately, I can't answer your questions. I only went there for dinner. I will suggest giving them a call perhaps...!
