Received a coupon in the paper and ordered one of the special meals by phone. Guy was great on the phone. Picked 2 sides. Was asked if I want Portugese buns or Garlic Bread. Chose garlic bread. Was not told about the $2.50 upcharge that I did not notice i paid for until I got home. Would have paid it, but come on, don't arbitratily add cost and expect people to not notice.
The guy on the phone also tried to upsell me on another side and I had to ask 2 or 3 times if it was included with the coupon I had. I did not need any more food - we were already getting too much. He had a hard time telling me that I would have to pay for a third side. Felt like I was being sold a car.
Chicken is consistent. I do find the fries get soggy by the time we eat them at home, but like the flavor. The coleslaw seemed about 2/3 full in the take out container, but that may be a full order. Was fresh and tasty.
The garlic bread is hamburger buns cut in half and lightly toasted. Pretty weak.
Ambiance is not applicable.

Another restaurant that could not handle the winter at the beach. From everything I heard they were actually ok. I wonder if the valet parking that they have started would have helped them. The location they have probably has the best view on the beach. It is right at the foot of the pier. Location has had so many owners.

We live in the area and go out for dinner quite a bit. We love to try different restaurants and support as many as we can.
However, we always end up going back to Cielo's. The food is the most consistent on the beach. Everyone we have taken there has had a great meal. The atmosphere is loud, the room is a little small for the amount of seats, but it all adds to the ambience that we prefer.
I highly recommend Cielo's for a night out on the town. Whether it is dinner for 2 or for a larger group, you are guaranteed to have an entertaining evening.
The Bruschetta and the Lobster Tortellini would be my favorites, as well as the Chocolate Mousse for desert.
