I love this place. Toby is fantastic. The food is good. Toby will go out of your way for anything. He even went and purchased me wine! During football season he's closed on Sunday, but opens up for us Gringos and we can watch the games in English. I absolutely recommend to everyone! Such a great place. And don't forget... More

We have been here in November. Season just started and we were the only guest one night. And the owner invited us to the opening a few days later. Nice service, good food. It is nothing luxurious but offers all you need and a cold beer.

We stopped in with some friends we are traveling with and were very pleasantly surprised. Not fancy by any stretch, but the food is amazing. We shared the coconut shrimp and lion fish and it was the best coconut anything I have ever had. I don't usually like fried food. The red snapper was delicious and really red snapper, not... More

Fish fingers were very good as were the chicken fingers. Good guacamole and chips. It's a local town in a town of 500 people. All we had were beers and appetizers, but I hear it's a local favorite!

We spent a delightful evening watching the Super Bowl game at Toby's Restaurant. Great fun was had by all as we eat, drank, and cheered throughout the game. We eat nothing fancy but hamburgers and fajita's were both were done well, were very tasty, and added to the whole experience. A great place to be when they are hosting a... More
