Surf House offers elevated dishes that fit the tropical setting like swordfish churrasco, steamed mussels, shrimp ceviche and a blackened mahi mahi sandwich to name a few. The second new restaurant, Freestyle, will serve as a quick service food venue and is designed to meet family needs and round out the Tidal Cove food and beverage offerings with items like pizza and house-made gelato as signature menu items.
