Enjoy a tropical cocktail as the sun goes down.” One reviewer at virtualtourist.com states “This place was probably our favorite!! The fish and chips are melt in your mouth good!!! And they give you tons. You eat outside at picnic tables and enjoy a million dollar ocean view!! We went twice …in the evening the sunset is wonderful from here!”
Located on the aptly named Sunset Beach, a visit to The Flying Boat Beach Bar and Grill may be required in order to conduct proper research. Anyone care to join me for cocktails at sunset?
