On our most recent visit the music was great and the tacos remain excellent. Service is terrible. Even after flagging down waitstaff they don't come over or respond. After 15-20 minutes we were able to get one server to take our order. And he was...More

The place could use a good cleaning, but I guess being on the river has some drawbacks.. on a night like tonight, with cooler tempts and a nice breeze it was fine...I had a house salad and a fish taco.. I liked the crunch of...More

While this is a great riverside location and the decor is fun and kitchy, the clientele is a bit sketchy. They allow smoking which invites a more biker-like crowd who rely heavily on beer drinking. The Fish tacos were much better the last time I...More

Chips and salsa for six dollars which was Costco chips with parmesan cheese and season salt sprinkled on them. Salsa was Pace Picante Sauce. Two tacos for $12 with Stale shells. The waitresses probably make way more money getting tips from people who buy beer...More
