This is a very nice restaurant/bar with a lovely view of the ocean. We decided to try their breakfast buffet today expecting something good and were disappointed at how mediocre it was. The selection of breakfast fare was very basic and nothing special....scrambled eggs, potatoes,...More

Not sure about the gift certificates online, but the valet parking is free. Plenty of parking in the neighborhood also.. ( St. Peters square, the Chamber of commerce is right there, and everyone parks there also)
