Very happy with our dinner! We had 2 kids meals, the snow crab legs, scallops, snapper and the coconut shrimp. Everyone was very satisfied with their meals and there was plenty to take home. I highly recommend their mojitos also! Very good price for the quality of food also.

We stopped here specifically to watch the Cowboys playoff game while on vacation. The restaurant was nice and clean. They had many tv's but they were at odd angles for some of the tables. We were seated at a table for 6 in front of the bar. There were 3 large tv's behind the bar but our view was obstructed... More

Julia is amazing, Erik so nice & Carmen is great too. Great drinks, & wings. Craving the fresh bread with homemade pesto.....awesome. I don't recommend the chicken picatta. Kinda bland and breading was mushy.

We started with the calimari, which was bland. I had coconut shrimp, and again, it just needed something. My husband had scallops with rice and beans. He loved the rice and beans but scallops were tasteless. There were lots of locals present, and they are definitely treated better than the tourists. It could have been a nice night, nice outside...

We went to this restaurant for lunch. The grouper tacos had a very strong fishy taste. I managed to eat one but left the other one. The rice and the beans that came with it were mediocre at best. Our experience at other restaurants on the island have been much better.

3 of us went for dinner and had totally different experiences. One of us had the coconut shrimp and it was very good. One had the grouper and it was ok and one us us had the "grilled snapper" and it was awful. Sent it back and the piece they sent out was just as bad so the waiter took... More

Food here was just ok. Nice artwork on the walls and the service was excellent. However the food was mediocre and the price was high for the quality of food

After a couple of years we thought we would try this place again. The staff was efficient and the food came out of the kitchen surprisingly quickly. My wife, based largely on the recommendation of our server, tried the drunken grouper. She asked specifically if the dish contained peppers and explained further that she and peppers do not get along.... More

Diverse American menu - nice selection of appetizers, sandwiches and dinner entrees. They start you with a nice small loaf of sourdough bread, warm & fresh from the oven. We had a burger done just right, a cup of clam chowder (delicious) and a cobb salad. Service was fast even though the place was full. A bit noisy but a... More
