The food here is really good. I especially like the blackened ahi tacos. The owners have just opened a microbrewery, so have some really good local beers. Highly recommend.

Busy restaurant with good food and pleasant staff. A bit noisy, but tables are spread far enough apart you are able to converse with the people you are eating with. Hearty food with nice portion sizes. Salad bar comes with most entrees.

We had the Mahi-mahi and the fajitas. This a rare occasion when you can get amazing Mexican & Seafood at the same restaurant! Both were delicious and the service was great👍

Great atmosphere, great food! This was a great place for our family- we felt there were a lot of choices, reasonable prices, and even though they were busy the service was wonderful. We will eat there again.

They were the exact same hard, dried burritos that you can get at the local convenience store (which I looked for yesterday and noted that they cost 38 cents at Walmart) with some congealed... More
