Lunch on the Beach

There are many places to eat on the beach, but don’t miss out on this one for a great lunch. Not only is there exceptional food and service. Enjoy fresh fish and pastas here including excellent, friendly service. The pasta with clams was amazing, as well as the lobster linguine and seared tuna salad – actually we ate here twice and every dish we had was phenomenal! My favorite!
