The service was below standard. The beer came with no gas…twice. The cocktails were over dosed with alcohol and food gross

Slow service today. Guy behind the till was doing his absolute best, but they are clearly understaffed in the kitchen. Waited 40min for two chip footlongs which was meant to be a quick snack.

This place is at the beachfront, so that alone is a winner for me. The food was awesome and fresh... also it doesn't cost an arm aand leg. A great view while you're having your meal.

My family and I decided to have breakfast at something good this morning. We were escorted to our table and provided with our menu. Upon looking through the menu deciding to what to drink and eat I noticed that 3 more tables came to have...something to eat or drink. Once they were seated and menu provided they were asked what they would like to drink. Shortly afterwards there drinks arrived and there food order were taken. While this was going on we were not attended to at all. The restaurant was not even at full capacity but we were left with no service. I gathered up my family and left the restaurant. Investing money into an establishment that can not even cover the basic restaurant code of ethics is a bad way to try and increase revenueMore

Ok, it's a roadhouse so the food menu is accordingly. Pretty good food though! Really nice staff and great location, facing the beach!

Was great to be able to sit in the car and chat as we waited for our food. Old style road house. Food was reasonably priced and good.

Breakfast was terrible, fried eggs were cold and tasted of fish. Never a good sign when the menus are so dogeared or the wooden tables so sticky

Myself and 4 others had breakfast there every morning. Excellent food for the price, if anything, unless you are a very big eater, there is too much food.
