The experience was overall average. Service was average, food was average. The beer was decent. It has a spacious bar area and I had a great time with my large group.

I tried their calamari and mango shrimp tacos. Pretty good. They also have a good selection of wines, and of course, beers.

We were there for lunch, so it was quite subdued. I don't know how things are at night, but I would be cautious about excessive noise with a 7 month old.
