“There is a longstanding restaurant in the front with excellent views, especially at sunset. I go there for the patio bar in the back. You will find boater's pulled up to enjoy the view and the music with a cocktail. They have some decent food options for a snack. They are pricey for what they are but do the trick. After all, you're there for the view.”

“OK we hate to admit this but we counted and this place is three hundred slightly drunken steps from the inlet to the top of our beach street! You can even hang on to the chain link beach fence and guide your way back. Hahaha. This place serves food, liquor and there's an ice cream store there as well!”
