the food was excellent but the décor could use some work. For the prices I was surprised at the cheat chairs and tables.

I loved the live music. They were out of dry ice for their margarita and the it didn't taste good. My husband and friend thought their food was ok but my tilapia was cold and barely cooked. You also sit in patio chairs which are not the most comfortable.

Good service, friendly waitress. Got the special of chicken enchiladas. It came with rice and beans. Had to send it back as rice and beans were cold. Refried beans were watery. Chicken enchiladas had a funny taste and were smothered in cheese. Expensive for a very poor meal.

It took an hour to get our food, it wasn't that busy, just short staffed. The Buffet was good, the staff was nice they just need more help. Also eating outside is not a good idea if you allergic to mosquito bites!

We were really looking forward to your visit here. We loved it last year when we came down. We were curious to see what it looks like after their remodel on restaurant impossible. Sadly, not much has changed. The service was good; probably the best we have on our trip. But the food was hit and miss. My son had... More

We went to this restaurant for a late dinner which we were welcomed by their staff. I will strongly recommend the ceviche (which my husband and I shared but next time we will eat one for each other since it was so good!). My husband had the shrimp and fish grilled combo and I had the chipotle chicken tacos with... More

Overall, the food was good. My husband ordered the chipotle chicken tacos, and I orderedd the Cobb salad. It took 20 minutes for a server to finally take our drinks. We waited 40 minutes for our food to arrive...and incredibly, had to wait 45 minutes for our server to charge us. Sadly, the place was pretty empty and still the... More

The Margarita was large, but weak and flat tasting. The Painkiller drink was good. The chicken entomatades was excellent. The staff was friendly. But, if you can't master the Margarita you loose points in our book. Who puts olives in a Margarita? Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain
