    Our waiter was great. The view was great. The parking was very expensive. Even with the validation. It’s unfortunate. They don’t validate the whole time you were there for dinner.

    Our family, 4 adults and 2 kids, had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my birthday on Sunday night. The Shores is our go-to restaurant for celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, scholastic or professional milestones--even a gender reveal awhile back. The food is great, the service always friendly and professional and the sunset views of the beautiful beach are the best. The restaurant is just a few steps from the sand! Two of us had the salmon--delicious, one the Cioppino--very tasty with a spicy kick and I had the delectable Corn soup followed by Tostada salad--perfectly dressed and right for a light main dish. They brought my dessert with lit candles and I was serenaded with the "Happy Birthday" song. All in all a special family memory.

    Food, view and ambiance were excellent. Our server was not professional or attentive. Additional training is needed.

    The Sunday Brunch Menu is excellent. The Monday through Saturday is not! Lots of people have told them how it is but they don’t seem to be listening.
