These are to die for. Should have ordered more and made a meal of these instead of the Mahdi mahi. Large portion, but over cooked. Service was a tad slow, but good. Strong long island iced tea, if you order top shelf.

We have been going here for years. Like the title says: you will not be disappointed with the quality of food - and the portions are huge. The owners set out to create an old style restaurant that serves steak and seafood at a great...More

This place has been here for many, many years. It's within the downtown area of Carlsbad so it's within walking distance of a few hotels near the beach. We have eaten here often, the prices are reasonable and the food is great! It could use...More
