This spot has the best mex type food, the wings and dipping sauce are my fave. The view of the harbor makes it even better.

I enjoyed the restaurant's atmosphere by the water. The server's we had worked really hard and did a good job. My family had about 70 people and we had no complaints. I would recommend this place for a family reunion anyday!
