Food was great, drinks were refreshing! The guys had a couple of the beers brewed in house, and the girls had a couple of the house cocktails. I would highly recommend the "Mission & Grand' cocktail that was originally recommended to us by our waitress....More

Ordered a beer and waitress forgot then brought a half beer. She was nice and didn't charge for it. Food was ok but just bar food and took over an hour after ordering.

Burgers and fish tacos were good. Service was great. A member in our party forgot his credit card. It's comforting to know staff is honest and the card was kept safe until we returned to inquire about it.
