Featured Restaurant
The Hangout

Built right in the middle of the place that for decades has been called "The Hangout" by surfers, locals and tourists wise to the local scene, the 21st century version of the Hangout gives props to several decades of Hangout lore in an open air 17,000 sq.ft. entertainment complex on 2.5 acres. The facility includes a restaurant that can seat 350, three outdoor bars, a 50 foot tower with a large movie screen and an outdoor stage for entertainment in the outdoor lounge area. The outdoor area includes rows of picnic tables that allow families to eat and relax while just steps away from the kid's play area that features a two story sand pile with plastic buckets and shovels, a water trough and tunnel, table top games and all sorts of things that will appeal to kids ages 3 - 80.
