Great food. We had pizza, breadsticks, hamburgers, and tator tots. Yum! We've really struggled this vacation with finding decent places to eat. Great service! Definitely recommend and will return:

Good place for a beer or cold drink after a day hiking or at the beach. Sports bar feel inside with pool tables and pinball machines. Pizza is solid.

Ate pizza with my family. Also had breadsticks, a pulled pork sandwich, and a kids chicken nugget meal. Pizza was delicious. Breadsticks are good, but opt for the cheese on top. Nuggets were so so. Price was high, but if you stick to pizza and...More
