Tips & Suggestions

Tips to Improve Your SBP Experience


We do have a parking lot but it can be a bit of a nightmare. It is long and skinny with one entrance. We STRONGLY recommend you try to avoid it! There is a city lot just west of us. It is free during the off-season and $5-10 otherwise. If you bring the little tear-off from the receipt, we will take $5 off your bill (like a coupon). You can also park on the bluff and walk down. Seriously, you want to avoid our lot on busy days… We warned you!

Download the “NOWAIT” App:

This app is very helpful on busy days. You can put your name on our wait list right through your phone and you receive a text when your table is available. Please note if you need a wheelchair accessible table. Also, you must be within 15 miles of SBP to use the Nowait app.


If there is a long wait (they can get up to 3 hours) we suggest you consider getting a takeout and enjoying it outside if the weather is nice.


We have a lock up area for your stroller. In most cases we do not have room in the restaurant for your stroller.

Babies Count:

Please include your baby in your party count. We cannot put high chairs at some of our tables so this will help us get the correct table for your group.

Plan Ahead:

On busy days get your name on the wait list and go enjoy the beach area. Go over to the carousel, stroll the downtown, take a walk down the pier. We will page you when your table is ready.

Large Parties:

As a general rule of thumb, the larger the party, the longer the wait. Please be prepared for this. Extremely large parties (over 12) may not be sat together or at the same time. Consider this when planning your visit. We are sorry for any inconvenience!
