Beautiful views of kids coming from camp, teens walking around with no cover ups with their butts exposed and breasts bouncing by while we were eating lunch. We ordered mussels and they were perfectly tiny and good. The calamari was ok and the red sauce a tiny spicy and goid but we all hate the tentacles. The peanut sauce was horrific to dip the tasteless rolled shrimp appetizers. The burger nothing to write home about, the bacon avocado panini nothing to jump over, the lemonade weak, the bar drinks similar to a pina colada was good. Won't try dinner, so not extraordinary to say the least. I waited so many years to get to fire island but have no need to return with this restaurant and the over priced bakery besides the ferry ticket.

Very romantic place - right on the water and can catch sunsets here. The seafood is great, as it should be being on the water. Service was very good and friendly. Love it and will be back

What could be better than dining on the water on a perfect summer day? As Omar Khayyam said. , “A jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou. Add a mesclun salad with salmon and a sunset. Perfect! The portions are small, but who cares?

I hesitate to give this an average rating as it is one of the best in the area. On Fire Island, expect poor service - just what it is. However, you can get a pretty good meal here, and the sunsets are spectacular. You are really eating out on Fire Island for the views, and to be near the water. it really is not about the meal! Fair selection, and children can get a solid burger. It is not inexpensive, and adults cannot order a burger on the deck. A few restrictions trying to bring up the outside seating tab, but if you are an adult who just wants to eat a burger and watch the sunset ...... try somewhere else! I wish they would eliminate plastic straws.

Stopped by at noon on a sunny and warm day. Not crowded yet since it is still early in the season so we got a table near the water. We each tried different drinks and each one was great. A Patron margarita, pink sunset (I think that's the name), a shark bite, and a rocket fuel. Next round, the rocket fuel won! Calamari and truffle fries were the perfect snack. Service was great. Will be back for dinner and a real sunset next time we're here.
