Eh ....

The view from our table was very good, overlooking the Atlantic . That's a big plus . The food was so so . We had the Mahi sandwich and the chili . The chili was lukewarm , and could have been better if it was at the appropriate temperature . Even so, I don't believe I would try it again... read more

Didn't read the description but ordered the jambayla, because hey, it was jambayla. They make it w pasta!! Who makes jambayla w pasta?? So disappointing. Go anywhere... More

This restaurant was appalling. Not only was the service terrible, but so were the drinks. Thank God we didn't order food. Our margaritas were so bad we sent them back and the replacements were no better. Even with the lights low we could see the grime. Not recommended at all. There are plenty of better places on the Blvd to... More

I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant. Definitely not like the one in Hawaii. The food was ok, came out a little on the cold side. Also a little over priced.

Amazing tuna bites from the app menu and teriyaki pineapple steak from the regular menu. Great prices and delicious with our drinks that were too strong. But can't complain about too much alcohol ha.

There were 11 of us and we were readily accommodated. Good food and the table at the terrace. We topped it off with karaoke to finish the night.had a blackened dish and enjoyed it.

We decided to check this place out late one evening in March 2015. The place had a few customers, was dark and not inviting. The restroom was disgusting. I refuse to eat at a restaurant that cannot manage to keep the restroom clean. Bar staff was friendly, but drinks were very overpriced. Would not return.

First sign of trouble should have been the 2/3 empty restaurant during spring break week. We had 2 servers assigned, but neither one actually cared we were there. Drink glasses sat empty as they talked it up with their co-workers a few feet away. We actually had to get the bartender/manager to get their attention twice. Food was cafeteria quality.... More
