“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I had been here a few years before and thought it was overpriced and average food. We had a gift certificate we have been holding for over 1 year, so we decided to give it a try again. The renovations since the storm hit are very nice. We sat upstairs near the balcony. My table was wobbly and the air conditioner or some type of vent above was periodically dripping down fluid right next to me and sometimes on me if the wind was right. The food is still average. Dry rice and super salty food. The drinks were good. I wish this place didn't take for granted that they will always have business because of their location, and spent a little time on quality.

“ok for quick eats”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Prices are ok and the food is okay. We ate at the bar, there is a Mex food restaurant upstairs. We ate upstairs last time and it was good but seemed pricey. Good service at the bar
