It's been in business since 1898. How many restaurants can say that? It's actually pretty affordable for the area but still very dependable food. Pub style food but also good seafood specials.

Really good tacos, empanadas, beans and rice, and margaritas. It's really qood quality, more healthy and light than a lot of mexican restaurants. The burrito is huge, you might want to share. Takeout optional but no delivery.

They actually make their donuts on premises. The atmosphere is not fancy, more like a hole in the wall old diner but the food is great and affordable. On weekends it can be hard to get a table because its small but it's a good option for takeout breakfast sandwiches.

Great view of the water (sunsets too) and a fun scene when they have live music. To get there, turn right just before the entrance to Calf Pasture Beach and keep going (past the marina and all the boats) until you get to the point.
