Steak should not be mooing. It was a little undercooked so order a step up from what you typically want (even if you like it well done) if you like cheese get the goat cheese croquettes. If you don’t like cheese I wouldn’t recommend. Great wine selections and most are a reasonable price to get a full bottle. Place gives good vibes

This was a phenomenal experience from start to finish. Service was fantastic as we were there celebrating my Dad’s 80th birthday. The food was amazing. Loved the Kale and Quinoa salad as well as the Onion dip and Brussels Sprouts. The carrot cake cheesecake was to die for, complete with a firework-style candle as a birthday surprise. Would absolutely recommend S3 to anyone looking for a great dining experience at a perfect location.

Ate on the beach on the beach all week. S3 was the best place to eat that I found. From the greeting, the atmosphere, the service , the eye for detail and eventually the food . An amazing experience thru and thru. Highly recommend S3 for every occasion. Class act by all. Courtney, my waitress was very knowledgeable and is highly recommended.

I made this reservation several weeks in advance to sit outside. There were two hostesses - when we got there they tried to seat us on the side patio right next to construction. We asked if we could sit in the front patio and one of the hostesses instantly said no because we booked our reservation for inside (which we didn’t as was evident on our open table reservation), the other kindly said we could sit in the front patio and found us a seat. When we sat down our waiter was quick to bring our bring our drink hit didn’t come back around for a very long time. I ordered a modification to my meal (replace rice with steamed veggies), and when the food was brought out there was no seasoning, sauce, or anything to make the dish look appealing at all. Overall, it was pretty disappointing. But, the ambiance is great.

The service was poor. Multiple family members were unable to get a drink for an extended period of time. Waitress checked on the table once throughout our visit. Fish was over cooked

Food was excellent but service was lacking and what I would expect at a entry level eatery. Plates were not cleared after appetizers and request for wine refill was verrrry slow( we were very close to be bar).

Everything was amazing! The reservation was simple enough to make on my own and it was easy to call the host and adjust it as well. The waiter was wonderful and so was my seat, view, and food! I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a scenic lunch with a beach view. 10/10!

S3 has always been one of my favorite restaurants. Although the food was still good, the service was horrible. Had to keep waving waiter down to get basics , appetizer plates, silverware, more drinks. First time I’ve experienced such bad service there

Great ambiance. Across the street from the beach and we were seated outside. Loved it! The service was amazing. Our server, Mack, was very attentive and took great care of our party. Mack made us feel valued and welcomed us back in the near future. The food was very good. Loved the onion dip, goat cheese croquettes, and cinnamon sugar doughnuts. Our entrees were good and their presentation was lovely. The Bubbly Bar was awesome! All the champagne you can drink for one price. :) They had 5 champagnes to choose from with over 5 types juices and garnishes that could be added. By far the best champagne brunch offering I've ever had. I will be returning and soon. A must if your in the area.

First time back to S3 since Covid. And boy were we happy! Food was delicious and interesting as usual. Service was terrific. Manager even came by to ask if we enjoyed our meal. And when our dessert was a little slow coming out of the kitchen, the restaurant gave it to us for free. So happy to be able to go back. Thank you

While the outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean was a nice setting, the traffic noise was annoying particularly the hot rod motorcycles. Their special was a New York strip steak which I ordered but didn't ask the price (lesson learned)... $65 ... My steak was undercooked an ok cut of beef, and certainly not worth $65. With only two drinks and another fish entree the total bill was $220.00. An OK setting, service was good but not excellent and the food overpriced. We will not go back there again.

Their brunch is fantastic. All the menu items we ordered were delicious. The edamame appetizer was amazing and very well made, so was the fruit platter. The service is great and the bottomless champagne bar is a great value. I truly recommend this place. One of our favorites!
