YouTuber Forrest Buchanan writes in a caption:

The swell increased with every wave that passed. I recall telling people at the table in front of me, the pier will likely be closed soon due to the high surf.

Then, after the wave came in:

The dining room was filled with the sound of glass shattering and people screaming as a wave of water rush over the dining room carpet.
