Good service after dinner

They offer the ridding service after dinner which is amazing. Food is good. I would say the lobster is pretty fresh. Kids enjoy very much. If you want to have BBQ, it's the place you can't miss.

It'll cost you more than $100 to have a date here and the food I a not worth it. Very basic stuff. Crowded and not very comfortable. Great staff but the owners are pretty rude. I won't be going back... ever.

Well I mean I don't know anywhere else I can eat the coconut crab so they are special. The crab is not cheap and it IS ALOT of work to eat it, definitely 2x harder than any other crab to eat. Meat is dry but sweet and there is not that much meat. Lets just say I would try it... More

I recently heard about this restaurant from a friend and was told to check it out. I don't understand the hype. Yes it is near the beach, but so is everything else on Guam. The food was just average and not worth the price. The service was okay. Overall, the experience was pricey for what we got in return.

Core has terrific food and prepares everything well - but it's a little pricey for what you'd expect. Feels a bit like a red lobster inside - but there was a cool island dance show that was entertaining. This restaurant is popular and gets very busy - which is to be expected bc the food is great and the service... More

It's nice to be in air conditioning but I do miss the outdoors feel. The pickup service is great. Saves walking/sweating. The driver is cute but obviously gay. Still very great experience!

For the price, I did not enjoy the steak (nor did wife). We did not consider the meat tender nor flavorful. I would kindly put it almost in the Outback/Lone Star/Black Angus realm but at a higher price. There was no water view anywhere, which might have justified the price. The appetizers were flavorful. The entertainment was fun, but the... More

We read about this place on Tripadvisor and it sounded really appealing. Finding it was a little hard as there was no road sign at the end of the road but if you can see the Police station, you are on track, keep it on your right and follow the quiet road towards the beach. Before long you will find... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how amazing the food was. My son really liked this place because there is a playground right next to where we sat. The 1.5lb newyork steak was good quality and was a friendly price to your wallet! Nice family joint.
