“Good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Good place for a late night bar meal. Food was good but nothing unique. Busy and noisy but it's a beach bar. Service was good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

positives:
food was really good. calimari appetizer was really fresh, homemade light batter, very very tasty and only 5 bucks for large portion within happy hour window. fish tacos were also very nice and wifey had chicken burrito, again large portion and tasty, kids meal good too. service was very good and i liked the place was buzzing, lots of people coming and going and generally having a good time
negative: Cant belive this but the mens restroom wasnt clean at all, its like they hadnt cleaned the restroom all day, paper overflowing from bin onto ground..not nice and only reason i dont give 5 stars

“Found a hair in my chicken wing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Found a hair in my buffalo chicken wing. Server apologized and offered to remove it from the bill. Food was decent, nothing spectacular

“Found a hair embedded in my panini. Server saw it and apologized but couldn't "find the manager"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

Was looking for an average meal and this looked local. Atmosphere was pretty noisy but it is a bar and grill. Server was busy and took a long time to get drinks. Food was about a b minus and then couldn't eat the rest of the panini when I found a piece of hair embedded in the cheese that obviously wasnt mind. Server apologized but did not attempt to do anything about it. Won't be going back if we visit again.

“So-so food, nice patio out back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

This is a good place to go when you're too bored to think of anything better. Good, if unimaginative, food and drinks. The patio out back is quite pleasant during happy hour. I like that you can bring your dog here. Otherwise unremarkable.
