Our go-to place for food and drinks between Solana Beach and Oceanside. We especially like the fish and chips, and the BBQ sandwiches. Friendy, efficient and knowledgeable service. Thank you!

Unpretentious with good food and drinks. If you wan to eat at the coast and have a bunch of tv screens available, this is a good spot. The food is really good and there are loads of choices. Same with the drinks!
