We had lunch on the patio even though it was a little cool. The chips and salsa were good and tacos fine.

Quick seating during busy spring break lunch. Great service and the food is surprisingly good—ask for Bennett. He makes a fantastic margarita

We stopped for lunch after our dolphin cruise with Capt Mark. Pleasantly surprised with quick seating, service and outdoor dining area. Loved that all tables were in the shade. The chili con queso dip was out of this world. Definitely recommend this place.

No complaints. Cheap beer. Cheap tacos. Decent kids burger. Everything is pretty standard, outside seating is nice.

Nice staff and quite comfortable. The mains we tried were just ok. Happy hour outside with nachos is great if you can get the comfy chairs by the outdoor bar!
