Elmo’s was recommended by people we met on the beach. Nothing fancy, kinda beach rustic. The fresh seafood was served hot and in large portions. We enjoyed the live beach music. They are known for their all you can eat crab legs.

Had the combo, baked fish and scallops . Food was okay. Scallops very small. Gave you more fries than Seafood. A little pricey for the Quality.
