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

Ceviche was great! I enjoyed my fish tacos, especially the creamed corn and black bean side. My husband enjoyed his BBQ Burger and we both agreed that the sweet potato fries were yummy! He also really liked his Boardwalk Blonde beer but my Strawberry Fields cocktail was less than stellar, not much taste and lots of ice. We sat upstairs... More

Excellent food!! Our table had ceviche, crab/lobster roll and shrimp tacos...it was all excellent! You can also see the ocean from the upper deck which is a plus! They had many options for drinks but we didn't have any during lunch. Wait staff was attentive and friendly

The food was terrible and cold. The wait staff was unfriendly and slow. the only thing this place has going for it is the rooftop view but you pay a premium for it. This place is best for drinks only and not much else.

I had lunch here with a friend and the beer was excellent, but the food was just average, at best. The location is outstanding on the west side of Mission Blvd. and next to the boardwalk. They have a nice outside seating area that is also available on the second floor. The staff was very friendly and attentive. They are... More

Great place to eat. Hit happy hour and had bottle of wine. Fish and chips was a huge flakey piece of fish. Enough to share. Guacamole was excellent. Kids menus and high chairs. Take a stroll down the board walk and stop by. Beer is pretty good also.

Thank Jan F
