Restaurant
$$
“I love this place! For years I never tried it as small town Thai food can be pretty greasy, but once i tried it, it is now a must stop every trip to the beach-which for me is at least once a month. Food is very good, inexpensive and healthy. Love the curry's. Helps that the cook and waitress are Thai. ”

Bar
“They are less than a block away and have great paninis, homemade soups, and pizzas. On the weekends they do a great BBQ with oysters on the half shell, corn on the cob and of course hamburgers. This can all be enjoyed on their wonderful fenced outdoor patio. They have live music Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for sure... Plus other nights too!”
