Servers were friendly. Menu has a wide variety. The prices were a bit higher than I expected. I will say, however, my son who tends to eat everything junky, found a healthy entree combo that he really liked. Worth it for that alone.

You get three blackened fish tacos. Really filling, sauce was great. Street tacos are also a treat. Chips and salsa bar, all you can eat.

Good seafood. Free salsa bar. Friendly service. A little bit generic and touristy (probably a bit overpriced) but it was nice for lunch. It looked like they had a good happy hour menu with both food and drinks.

If you are in Oceanside this is a must do. I got the shrimp bucket and the cold beer was on point. The view of the marina was pleasant and the ambiance is what I expected.

3rd time we’ve eaten here, and the food and service is always excellent, plus you’re right at the harbor! Don’t forget the chips & salsa bar!

We had been to the one in Old Town before, but this one is our favorite. My husband and I ordered the bucket of lobster, shrimp, carne asada and chicken. It’s so good!

Went on a Friday night around 9pm. Not too crowded, but I think the staff was just done for the night. My husband ordered tacos and loved them. I had their Baja lobster burger and it couldn’t have been worse. Lobster was heavily, not lightly,...More

Yes, there was. A nice variety if I recall. Tacos, hamburgers, fish and chips, nachos. But certainly they will let you know if you call as suggested by another or even better, they do have a great web site. Just be sure... More
