Great little beach shack to grab breakfast or lunch or dinner. They have the usual sandwiches, salads, chicken fingers, etc.The inside and out makes you feel like you are in a small town in cape cod instead of the Jersey shore.

Sticky, lack luster, and greasy. I saw another review of this place and they said it. Owner or manager seems distracted. Had to ask for everything and food wasn't good. Surprised we didn't get sick.

Having been a customer many times,the attitude from the owner never changes, she is very surly and acts like you are doing her a favor by coming into her dumpy, hot restaurant.Food was usually in the past, edible,this summer on two visits,had puny expensive steak...More

Breakfast sandwiches ordered here were fair. the bacon was fatty, rolls not very fresh and the time it took to get them prepared was long. For a Saturday morning, which is change-over day at the shore, they were short staffed and very busy. I know...More
