Typical Fare

Had a nice lunch here. Food was fresh and cooked to order. I'd recommend the fish tacos as well as many other things I've eaten over the years.

Even though some of the food is inconsistent (hey - it's bar food...), I continue to go back solely for their amazing DIRT PIE - ohhhhhhhhh so damn good, especially in the summer!

Love this place. Excellent service with a menu that has something for everyone. I also enjoy they don't allow kids (I don't have any and I don't want to spend my dinner hearing yours scream...sorry?!) Most importantly, TWO sides means my picky father gets a meal he likes AND is full (he's a hefty fellow).

If you're familiar with the OJ's name, this won't disappoint. We couldn't get a table earlier in the evening, but we ventured back later on and had no concerns. The wait staff was attentive and the atmosphere was fun! During busy times it would be helpful if someone took your name to coordinate getting the next available table. It was... More

I must admit that things have improved. My last visit was in April 2013. Went with a friend in Nov 2014 and decided to try the fish tacos which other people had told me were good. They were right. Not being sure we shared a starter of Long Beach Fish Tacos- blackened mahi mahi seared in chili lime sauce with... More

I ordered a Caear, spicy, and it was so spicy that Satan himself would not have been able to finish it. When I tasted the regular Caesar I realized it had quite the kick, so a warning on that would've been nice. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was fantastic if pub fare is your thing. Huge portions,... More

I've been to their Sundance location several times for wings night. The service is pretty good and the food was wonderful for a pretty good price. Overall – great location.

The service was good, our waitress was very attentive. We were here for some drinks and to share some appetizers. We had to send back the dry ribs, as they were so dry we could not eat them and there was more bone than meat on them. I would go back for drinks, but I don't think I would eat... More

Couldn't decide on where to eat so we thought we'd try this place. Pleasantly surprised by the prompt and attentive service. Meal portions were generous, and I will certainly return here again.

Second time we have eaten in one of these restaurants. Can't say enough about the service, menu, atmosphere and of course the quality of food. You get more than enough on your plate for the price. Highly recommend it.
