Food great - happy hour not so

Great location on Atlantic. Good food and the sushi is a must. Best I've had in the area. Think twice about happy hour. Can't take advantage of discounts unless sitting at bar and bar is always packed. They won't extend happy hour pricing to the tables. They should reconsider.

Stopped here for lunch on our first day in DelRay. Sat outside to enjoy the fine weather and to people watch. Fresh oysters and sushi along with cooked items like tacos and burgers. The sushi was well prepared, fresh, and tasty! This place is hopping! Located on busy Atlantic Avenue, it appears to be a big hit!

We have dined here a few times. The food is good quality and the service is usually pretty good. Our problem is the noise level. There is a long bar with many patrons on stools or standing at the bar, having a great time while you are maybe 6 feet away facing their butts. If you came for a romantic... More

Food and service are top notch. I especially like their fish tacos and draft beer selection. One of my favorites in Delray Beach.

Spent 9 days in the palm beach / DELRAY area over spring break. Are at some amazing spots...this clearly was our family favorite. The Sea Bass was incredible - do try it. Big bonus was the wine specials we discovered. Highly recommend.
