Popped in for lunch. The bar is a boat very unusual. We had lunch on the patio. As it was out of season it was very quite. Service was attentive and professional. The food was good. The setting amazing.

This is the ideal location, literally right on the beach. The service is friendly and good. The interior of the bar is made of an old fishing boat and is a must see.
