The exterior of the building was plain, but stepping into the restaurant you feel as though you've been transported to a beach - beach balls, surfboards, cool blue wall paint, and a fun atmosphere.
The menu is displayed on electronic screens. There's a nice selection of burgers, chicken, fried fish, and even lobster rolls (served only on the weekends). Deciding on what to get might be tough. We had our eyes set on The Norwalk Burger and the Fish and Chips.

Can you guess the top sellers? Well, they are the top two on my list: Sandy Beach and Nut Crusher. Going with the cashier's recommendation, we ordered the Nut Crusher and watched them make it: 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream, a huge scoop of Nutella, a cup of crushed peanuts, and a cup of milk blended to perfection topped with whipped cream and more crushed peanuts. Should I have asked for more Nutella - nah. The milkshake put a big smile on my face with the flavors dancing in my mouth. Definitely one of the best milkshakes I've ever had. Oh, and when I say the milkshakes are gigantic - they are - enough to share with someone else. Or maybe you could have it all to yourself. ;)
If milkshakes aren't your thing, they've also got fried Oreos, Nutter Butters, Snickers and Twinkies.
I'll be back for more...and I'll let you know how the Sandy Beach milkshake is...
