Enjoyed a nice lunch with an ocean view. Food was reasonable priced, tastey and we'll presented. Restaurant is located at the end of the bus and trolley line. Located across the street from the beach, beautiful setting.

Located opposite the beach at Onetangi, the food is definitely much much better than just down the road at the Boathouse (yuk)! This place had a make over over the winter, you can eat on the outdoor deck or inside. Can be quite breezy if...More

New ownership and beautiful renovation, this favorite amongst locals and tourist really delivers. The menu is varied and the food is great, combined with a spectacular view of the beach makes this one of the very best places to enjoy the afternoon.

Yummy homie food by the beach. Let's try lamb burger. Beware of seagulls while you are eating outside because they may want to join your meal too.
