Tasty pizza, well made fried ravioli, the most watered down soft drink I think I've ever had. Their burrito was MASSIVE but, sadly, didn't taste as good as it looked. Lots of TV's and noise but it's a friendly multi-roomed place with a stage that's probably in great use over the weekend evenings. I liked our waiter and, in fact,... More

It was very clean and had lots of choices, while not too expensive. Loved the Turkey cobb sandwich. Very good service and the outside seating was very clean.

This is a decent place, not great, not bad, just decent. The service was really slow to start and then became steady as time progressed. The beer was reasonably priced on happy hour and the selection included local to the region, local from the US, and then some import. I had two local beers - an IPA and a red... More

We opted to try OC Tavern after a long drive to Cali. Taco salad was excellent and husband's burger was excellent as well. Chili was amazing! We were expecting a small bowl of chili, but it was a meal in itself. Staff was friendly and a gentleman who I believe to be a manager stopped by our table to see... More

We stayed in a hotel just down the road from here. We didn't do the "bar" thing, but found this place to be a great place. Our food was good, and enough of it. Our waitress was fantastic and the outdoor seating can't be beat!

What happened to this place? It went from nice Casual Dining Restaurant to a SKANKY Hooters Dive Bar. Is SKANKY the new trend? We came here last night for happy hour! (M-F 4-7pm) The HAPPY HOUR menu WAS $3 pints on draft beers, now its $5 pints! I can understand if $5 pints pay for a Beach/ Sunset view --but... More
