    Dishonestly with their prices... claim 50 off and they charge something outside the menu

    Had an older guy serve us and he sucked! While the food was okay the service was no good expescially for a pricey menu.

    Avoid - offer 2 for 1 but then not recognised on bill until challenged. Salad poor, no croutons and quantity of food limited.

    In season or out this place can't be beat! The food, drinks and atmosphere are the best!

    Decent Bloody Mary (2 for 13) not best deal. Pancakes were fine, scrambled eggs over cooked, sourdough toast tasty.

    Food was a B..not much taste or seasoning, the calamari was weak with no seasoning. Good spot to chill beachside and hear live music at night

    Forget the 2-4-1 Mamosa's. The 'special' price is somewhere around $12 - definitely NOT a bargain. The food was typical of any diner, up to par with a Denny's. AVOID (period).

    Wasn't the best place undercooked the Calamari. And the coconut shrimp was hard. Also refills took forever.

    The manager is very kind and the wait staff is very friendly. However for the guys when you go to the bathroom don't forget to top the attendant or he'll get mighty cross lol.

    flat Sprite, rum, lime slices, and 2 mint leaves doesn't necessarily make a Mojito.

    Don't bother. Waited 20+ minutes for 2 eggs over easy. Wasn't even crowded. Never came to table to refill water. Waste of time.

    With local acts playing on the indoor and outdoor stages, this large, tasteful bar and restaurant spills it funky vibe onto the A1A strip.
