We absolutely loved this restaurant. The food and service were excellent. Our server, Samantha, was helpful and attentive. We split the steak bites- delicious and had the fish tacos for dinner -wonderful! We went back a second time just for the steak bites.

We stopped in for an early dinner (2 adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 13) and the happy hour menu was available. We ordered several small plates: clam chowder, sliders, street tacos, pizza. All were good, though nothing special. Our water was lovely - funny,...More

We went there for dinner and asked for a quite table away from the bar. The service was excellent, the food was very good, nice athmosphere. The place was very busy but the service was fast. Highly recommended.
