We ate here twice during our one week stay in Ocean City. The first time was lunch and we got there right when they opened. We are a family of 5 and requested to sit on the bar side to watch the olympics. They had no problem accommodating us. Our waitress was great and very attentive. Between the 5 of us we had kids meal burgers and fries (plenty of food), queso dip, nachos, crab quesedilla, beef tacos and fish tacos. The food was delicious and the price was fantastic!! We tried again through the week around 5 p.m. and were told that it would be a 90 minute wait. We opted to leave and came back again on a Friday around 3:30 and we were seated immediately. We came back specifically for the fish tacos and queso dip. We had a different waitress this time who was just as great. Food was again delicious , portions were great for the price. Our only complaint (which we struggled to even find one) would be lack of seating. We will definitely be back to eat here in the future!

The queso was awesome and it is a huge bowl! A must try! Ordered the blackened flounder salad that was very good too. Loved the laid back atmosphere, staff was attentive and helpful, booths are very large and could have sat 7 comfortably. Will defiantly visit again!

The food, service and ambience were great. And, the drinks were better than what I've had in Manhattan!! The prices were very fair considering the size of the portions. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. Highly recommend!

This place is very popular so go early. There's a vibrant bar scene but the food is okay. The prices were reasonable and the portions were great. Nice place to have dinner with a family
