The food options here are varied and tasty. If you’re REALLY hungry, get the nachos. If in the mood for a snack, opt for the teriyaki tidbits. Whatever you do though, have a Mai Tai. Yum!

The restaurant is part of a small group of California and Hawaiian restaurants. There is definitely a relaxed and friendly vibe. The view of the marina is a bonus so request a window table! The menu has variety but as expected emphasizes sea food. The...More
