“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My husband chose this restaurant after his round of golf at Pebble Beach on St. Patrick's Day. The food and service was very good and a nice ending to his special day!

“Dinner with teens”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went in for early dinner, it was really quiet only three other people eating at the time. Liked the outdoor patio seating and fireplaces. Probably a fun place to meet for drinks on a weekend. But for a family dinner it was over priced and really nothing special other than the fact that a famous person owned it.

“Awesome Bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great place to meet friends for food and drinks. The food is excellent as is the atmosphere. Plus every so often you run into the owner, Clint Eastwood.

“Great atmosphere, but that's it! Bad food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Great patio with fireplaces and a Pirates of the Carribean type charm. Great for pets.
The food was mediocre and very overpriced. The desserts were awful. We had cheesecake and an apple tarte and it felt like the chef was trying to reinvent the wheel. Unfortunately the cocktails were also bad. Overall the food was just bad.

“Don't Go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I was unimpressed...dirty bad service. We went into bar because we didn't get waited on at table. Ordered a beer and left.
I don't care who owns this- need to clean up and retrain your staff!
Avoid the bathroom at all cost...by alleyway with a homeless guy. Bathroom was dirty too!
