“Great taco salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I've eaten here a few times over the years and am never disappointed by their taco salad. Huge drink selection, especially margarita's, which my wife enjoys.

“Friendly staff and good beer helped otherwise average bar/food establishment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We were in Wildwood mid October and by the time we went out Sunday night (about 8pm) this was about the only place open - of the places still open in the off season. The place was empty, but you could feel that it was a lively sports bar and the place for margaritas and beer during the summer. Our server was very friendly and helpful. He helped me find a good beer - offered several samples first. We ordered nachos and taquillos and I'm glad they were out of the latter since the nachos were plenty for the two of us. Nothing to write home about (or more here). Best were the chips - crispy, light but with a firm corn taste.

“Go some place else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I had dinner with two friends in mid-October. The restaurant was virtually empty. We each order the paella at $28 each, plus two appetizers and drinks. The paella was missing the chorizo and the waiter acknowledged that the chef forgot it, so our main course was very tasteless and primarily looked like someone three a couple clams, mussels and a scallop into a plate of rice-a-roni. We couldn't even eat it. We were offered free fried oreos in exchange. After complaining on their website and viewing photos of how their food was supposed to look, we were offered $15 if we returned. Which we did. This time the food was better, but we were very caucious. We order lobster bisque after asking the waiter if they had it. He had confirmed it was available, but came back later saying they were out of lobster and we were there early in the afternoon. The waiter suggested substituting crab for the lobster, but charged the same price. They do not have brunch after September, but they have menus at the front counter that don't indicate there brunch is confined to certain months. The margarita we ordered ($12 a piece) was supposed to have a spear of fresh pineapple soaked in a special tequilla - guess what - they forgot that too. And we were the only customers ordering at the time. There was another table almost finished and another table that arrived after we were almost finished. So, you can't blame it being too busy. I'd hate to see it if they were busy.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The food was tasty but heavy. Just average to my tastes. No one in my party wanted to take home their leftovers.

“great again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We always stop at Juan Pablo's while we are in town. Everytime we have been there we are satisfied with the food,service and of course the drinks. Oliver the manager, took care of us at the bar. He is very friendly and informative. He came around just at the right moments,the drinks were great and the homemade chips and salsa are always great! I love the nachos and we add beef and it is not ground it is shredded ! just the right amount for 2 people! Will always return there when in town!
