Ryan is an amazing mixologist. He made the perfect sidecar and two custom tequila-based drinks. We had a few appetizers as well - both fantastic. Of the 3 restaurants we visited on Catalina, this was by far the best.

like others before me, ask the restaurant - most restaurants do, with varying corkage costs.
