Fish and Chips

Fish tasted really good, but dry herb seasoning was way to spicy, bitter and strong. Was told it was sea bass. Would have tasted really good had it been seasoned with salt and pepper. We were behind about 14 other people, took at least an hour to get the fish. Were about ready to leave when... read more

We are easy to please people but this place was over the top frustrating. The manager was barking at the one server who was over worked and alone- it was embarrassing for us to watch. The manager stood at the bar and yelled at the server to do this, do that. He was run off his feet and poorly trained.... More

We stopped in around happy hour to have an appetizer and a few drinks before heading to a BBQ and it did not disappoint. The fish was on a bed of rice with some Asian slaw and cooked to utter perfection. The happy hour drinks were great and didn't break the bank. After that delicious appetizer or pupu in Hawaiian...

The food here was very good. We had the special which was fresh sea bass (grilled) with fries. The reason for the low rating is the restaurant itself. Very crowded, uncomfortable seating, and the service was ok. We felt very rushed to finish our meal even though we were the only table.

A friend recommended that we try out this restaurant and have the butter fish. When we arrived at 6:30pm it was a ghost town. The employees had their feet up on the tables. They said they were open but between menus. ( since discovered that they have been this way since November 2014) They only offered the Sea Bass. When... More

We saw previous reviews and took a chance anyway. The food and service were excellent. The catch of the day was cooked to perfection and the wait staff were all friendly and efficient.

This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The food was terrible. At one point we heard the cook say to the server "I don't know how to cook the special", which was a simple fish meal. Apparently, he didn't know how to cook any of the food as the bruschetta and shrimp were really bad. The... More

We got off the plane a bit peckish! Found easy parking and greeted by a super friendly server with the most amazing fake red colored head if hair I have ever seen! We ordered the catch if the day and it was good, we asked for rice, got french fries, but hey on vacation! They ran out of beer we... More

Waitress spent more time gripping at the waiter then taking care of her tables. The waiter then quit. The cook barely moves, very slow. We sat there watching all this drama, finally we got a drink and left. We will not be back!

This place is a dump! The only flavor was the old fryer oil! My wife's pasta was just that pasta no sauce at all and 4 over cooked shrimp. They forgot my sons food and wanted to charge us for it! Don't eat at the poopoo lounge! We left for Taco Bell! Yuck!
