Miriam will only deal with patrons she knows and if you buy her shots! Otherwise she will ignore you as hell.

I spent a number of afternoons at the Lookout Bar & Refuge while at the LaQuinta. I really enjoyed Margaret as a server. She was very attentive and pleasant! I will be back.

$7.99 ...giant double burger with egg, cheese, mushrooms, onions...the 2 hamburger patties are regular size and large! The two of us share this burger....comes with fries or coleslaw. Definitely a meal! Eat indoors at picnic table by the beach or take out.

Pizza is very good and reasonably priced. Crust is crisp! They have multiple sizes and two varieties of virgin daiquiris! My daughter loved the mango! Service was good. The only reason they didn’t get 5 stars is we sat waiting for our pizza. It was...ready, no one told us it was. Much better food and service than the bar next door!More

The ocean views are nice. The beach access is convenient. However, the food is just ok, and the walk from the parking lot is VERY long.

This place had decent prices but the food was less than desirable!! We regretted our choice of hot dogs and cheeseburger.

I should have taken pictures. The food was good. But all served in plastic. Even if you eat there, in-house? A little pricy. $44 for a margarita, beer, salad, and fish / shrimp dinner. But nothing special

We had most everything on the menu while at SPI for 5 weeks. Outstanding shrimp and fish (blackened/grilled) and burgers are good, large and well prepared. French fries very good. Pizza delicious and good choice of ingredients. Michael and Christian and Manny are outstanding. Friendly...and efficient. If they don't have your game on, they gladly will change the channel on one of the 3 big screens. ps: excellent virgin Mary's!!More
