Although the this was a little noisy it had a fun atmosphere. The nachos and steak sandwich were delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly.

We stopped here last minute for fish and chips. I had a child's portion which was still a very good size. Both of us agreed they were delicious and very reasonable price. Nice lookout over the beach. Highly recommend this place.

The perfect spot to have a beer and chat with your friends. Facing the beach and on the road side. Wonderful atmosphere and environment, friendly staff and yummy food. They even have kids many. We enjoyed fish and chip, steak sandwich and chicken burgers, wonderful.
