Who says enjoying the beach has to be limited to the time you spend there? Take full advantage of our sandy shores by enjoying some of the scenic waterfront dining. Whether you choose to dine oceanfront or riverfront, you are sure to have your breath taken away time and time again. Oceanfront dining allows guests to take in the ocean breeze and the soothing sounds of the waves while riverfront dining offers sunset views and the chance to take in boats cruising up and down the channel.
