I ate here twice while on vacation over New Year's. First time we sat on their roof top and enjoyed a delicious lunch with a great view of the beach! I kept trying to sneak bites of my boyfriend's shrimp tacos (YUM!) and the garlic fries were perfect. Second time was in their normal dining for a small dinner on... More

We took our group of ten here and they got us in somehow. The place was packed! Our service was fantastic the whole time and everyone loved the food. We will make sure to get back to this place whenever we stay in Mission Beach.

Friendly staff, reasonable prices, excellent beverages. I could have done without the football coverage but considering the time of year - I understand.

We came here on Christmas night. The food was delicious. Four of us ate off of the special Christmas menu including lobster bisque, salad, prime rib and chocolate lava cake. The other family member ate off the regular menu. Nice location near the beach. Was able to find street parking.

My husband and I just stopped by the night of the Super Moon but we were pleased that we got a seat on the patio. Jokingly I ordered the 'big' Chardonnay and to my surprise, that's what I got (regular price). Thanks!

We stumbled upon this place during the lunch hour on the way out of town and we're pleased to find that our children were welcome, based on the name. The decor inside was inviting and the service staff were absolutely amazing. They had kids menus and bloody Mary's to die for. The snake bites were probably the best bacon wrapped... More

Waiter ignored our presence not clear if it had something to do with our ethnicity. He had no trouble serving other customers who came in after we did. Complained to manager who claimed the waiter in question was one of his best. I ca only imagine what the rest of the staff are like. We chose to leave and went... More

We popped in for lunch and sat outside on a nice sunny day. Very friendly staff and a good reasonably priced menu. We had lovely fish tacos.

Went here for Thanksgiving dinner. (I know, it's awful to make people work on holidays). Everyone was very nice and the food was great. They had a set Thanksgiving menu and another menu of their regular meals to choose from. I went with the turkey meal of course but everyone loved their food and we had a great time. The... More
