I have had dinner at the bar and the breakfast buffet. I enjoyed both. The dishes were great, the drinks are awesome, and staff were friendly. Great spot close to the hotels on Stonelake Blvd.

I was really impressed by the inventive lunch menu, I had the stuffed avocado, it was amazing. Service was amazing. Highly recommend, especially for a lunch that isn't the same 'ol, same 'ol.

We all had some version of fajita for dinner. The food was flavorful, and plentiful. Olivia our server was helpful and on top of things. The recommended margaritas were unusual, spicy and enjoyable.

Pollo Relleno is amazing! (Pic below) Stuffed with yumminess and cooked to tender perfection! What a lunch feast! My brisket quesadilla was phenomenal and more than enough for a lunch portion for me even though it was a tapas. I've never had salsa so good,...More

Great dinner. We were going to the restaurant next door, but there was a wait and we were hungry and tired. My husband was especially happy because there were TV's in the bar where we ate that were tuned in to the basketball playoffs. I...More

The atmosphere was nice, service excellent. We stayed in the hotel close by and decided to try it out. Seafood was pricey but very much worth it. It was a date kind of dinner and my 11 year old was with us. Everyone got full....More
