“We are proud to reopen (with improvements) as the Mandalay Oceanfront Grill & Tiki – a casual dining fun restaurant/bar/joint!  Join us in the intimate bar or on the outdoor oceanfront covered dining deck with amazing views, full liquor, and live music every night and weekend days.  We serve Big Flavors & Easy Prices, and have ample parking for cars, motorcycles, busses, bikes RV’s as well as boat dockage.”
