The food here was delicious and you get lots of it. The place was full and has been on You Gotta Eat Here. There was entertainment and the staff was super friendly.

Cold beer, casual and good food. Life is Good! Friendly service with great burgers, special homegrown Coastal sauce. We had to wait on the outside patio for the bus group to clear out--but if they are bringing in busloads it's gotta be good!

We were staying just down the road, so stopped in here for dinner. Gourmet it's not! but the food was tasty and satisfying, the beer cold and they were able to accommodate my wife's food allergies. Did I say the service was friendly and helpful?...More

Food is delicious in this restaurant. It does get busy so be prepared to have a little bit of a wait. You can look at the lighthouse while there and enjoy the view.
