Close to home or a place to visit while on vacation. A little busy at the intersection to turn into parking area but once parked and inside the food was worth it.

Had an OK meal but not special. Gluten free options/accommodations available but not marked on the menu. The chef did make adjustments to make items selected gluten free. A bit pricier than I would have expected for the items served.

The Baja fish & shrimp tacos are incredible. The bar has a great selection of craft beer on tap & the fruit crushes are wonderful. Our server Lara was friendly & attentive. This is the best restaurant & bar at the beach!
