    Kobe beef sliders were good but only 3 of them for "sharing with friends" isn't enough. The ceaser salad has too much lettuce and dry croutons.

    Açai bowls from the takeout window are authentic (made just like in Brazil) and delicious.

    Really nice staff and solid beach bar but the wings were gross - some of the worst I've had - and I have a high tolerance for mediocre bar food.

    If you like vodka, Jager, and a hint of cherry liquor with rum, try a "surfer on acid" (at the bar, not beach).
