Great Restaurant

This is a lovely restaurant with very good food. The staff was excellent and so friendly. The owner was a very nice man who made a point of talking to us before we left the restaurant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for a pleasant night out.

Our meals were delicious and the presentation was that of an upscale eatery. Free margs with coupon (that they give you at the door!)

Absolutely lovely restaurant. The atmosphere is as if you are sitting in the jungle. Live music..loved everything about it. The food was fantastic. I ordered one of the specials, Mahi Mahi in a cilantro cream on a roasted portabello mushroom. It was served to me on a hot tile. Great presentation. It didn't look like a lot of food, but... More

This place is a must. The music is good MOST of the time. The wait staff is good all of the time. Great chicken wings, if you are a fan. Altogether a great meal and well worth the price.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Went back for our last dinner there. The owner's son came table-side and shared a great bottle of tequila. We spent 3 hours there for a great dining experience.
