We are
OPEN for OUTDOOR DINING and TAKEOUT!

Due to air quality, we have to periodically close our outdoor dining throughout the day.  Please be patient with our staff as they navigate these changes in a stressful time.  Our takeout will remain open during these times.  Thank you for your patience!

Please read and follow our Guest Safety Guidelines and read about our restaurant changes.

Reservations are available Monday through Friday, and walk-ins only on weekends.  We are open lunch through dinner seven days a week, with new hours.  The maximum party size is six people (must all be present to be seated).  Please wait in your car or on the beach until your table is ready.  Face coverings are required, and tables are reserved for dining only – alcohol cannot be served without a meal.  We are SO excited to welcome you back!

Click here to order TAKEOUT online, or visit the restaurant outdoor takeout window. Please stay in your car or on the beach, and we’ll contact you when your order is ready. Takeout is open daily until 7:30pm.
