When we arrived, there were plenty of tables open...by the time we left it was completely full! I admit I was a bit surprised at a full restaurant, at lunch on a week day, off season! One waiter handled it all...and did an excellent job.
We started with both of us ordering the Tropical Tea - sister loved it. We spent a lot of time perusing the menu and I finally decided on my "regular" - a delicious Beachfront Salad with grilled chicken. While certainly delicious, I was greatly disappointed that it was missing the Parmesan crisps and caramelized pecans that really go towards "making" this salad extra special. I guess for a $19 salad ($13.95 plus $5 for the chicken addition), I expect to get all that is advertised. But, as I said, still delicious.
Sissie ordered the Spinning "Crispy" Chef Salad as a tryout for her husband, Rob. He likes the chef salads apparently and she was hoping to lure him back down there because she knew he would enjoy the beachfront location....but only if the food was as equally delicious as the view!
I will likely get that salad the next time I come - I tasted hers and it was delicious. I do love honey mustard and have gotten kind of stuck in the awesome rut of their Beachfront Salad...but that chef salad was a new contender in my game! A good buy for $12.95.
Mostly we enjoyed the cool breeze, the gorgeous flowers bloomed up in the low dunes in front of the restaurant (due to a couple of days of good rain) and the beauty of the Gulf Coast.
It's a small place, very personal, and I've never had a bad meal there. Fingers crossed it never changes! I haven't talked to my sister yet, but last night when the teen and I joined her family for a delicious lobster dinner, she was encouraging her husband to walk down with her for breakfast (she'd checked out the breakfast menu while we waited for our food). I hope, if she went, that her second trip was as enjoyable as the first!
Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
