    Our waitress was very attentive even though it was busy and we stayed long after we were finished. Loved her sweet energy. The food had a nice presentation and very tasty with interesting textures, flavors etc. it was noisy but really appreciated that they address it by adding acoustical panels on the ceiling. Liked the vibe of environment, clean, simple, no fuss & sophisticated. Usually beach restaurants rely on the view vs quality of the food.

    They were out of nearly all proteins and didn’t let us know before we tried ordering many of the items with proteins.

    We were a party of four. Two of us ordered fish - one salmon, one fish and ships. The portions of fish were rather small, tasty but small portions. Waitress was great with descriptions and recommendations. Allowed me small samples of gin before I picked the one for my martini. We enjoyed our evening, just surprised at the small serving of protein on two of the orders.
