We tried to get a table on the previous week but the wait time was very long. The restaurant was quite convenient for our B&B . When we returned to the restaurant We found the menu quite restricted. It was very noisy

I had driven by so many times and today stopped in. Had the gorgonzola steak salad....Very good. Recommended by the very lovely hostess. Again at the recommendation of the hostess went upstairs to the very cool bar and outdoor patio. Had great service from the staff and my salad was served on the patio. Had an Aardwolf IPA, Aardwolf is... More

Very popular spot two blocks away from the St Johns River in Downtown Jacksonville. We called for reservations, but was told they only take call ahead reservations. But since she was the owner, she still took my call ahead reservation 6 hours in advance lol. Fabulous adult beverages, good sized drinks and extremely fair prices. Ask about their daily drink...

Welcoming, friendly atmosphere; fun, attentive staff; and most importantly, excellent Southwest food seasoned and prepared to be savored with every bite. Three of us sampled tacos (one, Mahi; the other, jerk chicken), a Mahi filet, and crab cakes. All three dishes were delicious, including the sides. We brought two of the homemade desserts -- key lime pie and a toasted... More

This quirky little cafe is a delight. Great food - and a lot of delicious gluten-free options for those of us who need (or those who just want) that kind of meal. The service is skillful and the ambiance is neat. I highly recommend it.

Meat loaf burned my throat there was so much salt in it. Not good at all. Potatoes were good but cold. Based off if this visit I won't be back.

I should have written this review 5 years ago but how fabulous that what I would have written then is still so true. Kudos to the chef for anything prepared with seafood. Creative and seasoned perfect. The salsa is our favorite of any restaurant we have been to. Also avaliable to buy and take home. We love the bar staff.... More

the crab cake salad is wonderful. The sauce is excellent. And you can buy the sauce to take home. Also try the fish tacos. Salmon or tuna. Delicious. Great little tax-mex place. Worth trying to find a place to park.

I had leftovers for 2 more meals...I got mine with no meat the others had chicken, they loved theirs as well. They have... More

Dinner there tonight. Crab cakes are super. Friend said the meatloaf was tasty, and plenty of it. We ate upstairs where the bar is. Couches look comfy. All they are missing is a roaring fire place. Staff is attentive, but not intrusive. This is my go-to place on a regular basis. Simply; cool place to be and share with friends.... More
