It is a nice place to go for a burger and icecream while at the beach even though the burgers are not as good as a few years ago

Great location and although pricey I have enjoyed eating lunch here and looking out at the ocean many times. However, I recently tried the soft serve ice cream and was not pleased. Maybe it just my taste, but I found it to not be flavorful...More

Small portion, big cost (proportionate), sad food. No longer a favorite. This is an "ok to miss" when you visit the area.

Since 1921 the Forbes family has been serving tasty fried seafood, home made onion rings, pizza, beer and wine, ice cream, popcorn and fresh ground hamburg. One meal that is asked for is the famous Scrambleburger. Though all our customers have tried to replicate this at home, they always come back to tell us, "It's just not the same!" Whether you start your day at the beach with a muffin and coffee or end the day with an ice cream, there is something for everyone.
