Great place in the area

Food is excellent. Place usually is not too busy. Huge plates and they have a full service bar. Sangria is real good and strong too

Good food but overall the place lacks ambiance. Feels like your in a pub with a few tables around. Service could also be warmer and faster as well. Food is actually good but not that cheap compared to similar restaurants.

I have been there some times because I was recommended to get some sangria. I have been in Spain a long time and I know how the authentic sangria should taste like, and that was really an average americanized drink instead of an authentic one. Over all the restaurant is good for the food, big portions and good quality, but... More

Firstly, the Jumbo Shrimp with Garlic was very tasty paired with real potato chips. But secondly, why would you ruin my mom's very fresh flounder with boxed mashed potatoes!!!??? And additionally served frozen veggies right out of the bag!!!??? And they didn't try to make them better with their own sauce. :( The beer seems a fresh as they say,,... More

Either bar or casual dining. Can be romantic or fun! Great food. The waitresses are always nice some of the food is pricey some cheap but everything I have ever ate there has been great from their $7 cheese steak sandwich (my fav bar food) to their array of fresh seafood platters (my fav dining dishes)

Recommended by our AAA counselor as we chatted and planned a trip to FL. This is a wonderful find. Tiny neighborhood restaurant, delightful, friendly service. Parking was horrible with snow mountains and neighbors staking out spots with cones and chairs, but a trip around the block found us a place. The food more than made up for the inconvenience. We...

I've been coming here for years. Fantastic sangria, even better garlic shrimp. The place is tiny and gets very loud and packed, if you're looking for good Portuguese food come here.

My history with this joint: Okay, so I've been coming here for years. Overall, the food quality is consistent. I have gotten a nasty piece of chicken once, I complained because its my American right and they kindly replaced it with a better piece. So what have eaten?: My favorite dish is either the garlic chicken dinner(12$) or sandwich (10$)... More

My son and I go here for dinner after his football practices and I live right in town not far from here. Small interior, but food is out of this world.
