I went here a while ago and I forgot to write a review. The tacos were great and the price were very reasonable. The place was really packed. Be prepared to wait a long time. The service was good.

This is definitely s "Surf" bar. Between the food, the music and the decorations this is a fun and great place to eat. I had the fish and sliced potato "homemade" chips and Scott had the fish tacos. Both very yummy. The service is great.

This is an order at the window and be seated type restaurant. The seating was adequate. The chicken tacos and the fish tacos were good, but nothing "wow". The clam chowder was a disappointment--few clams, lots of corn, and not too much flavor. The calamari...More
