Stellar sunset ocean view, but based on the disappointingly weak and flavorless $15 house margarita I had, I'd stick to the beer list.

We sat up on the roof...not just a song. We really sat up there and had the sweet potatoe fries with warm maple syrup. The guys had a craft beer which was a local favorite, the gals had a glass of wine. We all had a great view of the sunset.

Server too busy. But very nice. Good selection of drinks. Food selection is average at best. Appetizers only ??! Too many options out there to choose this place.

It almost doesn't matter where you sit what a view. So laid back and the wait staff very friendly. It is first come first serve for the seating so don't wait for someone to get you a table if have to have a person hover around when someone leaves you sit down but the wait staff clears the tables quickly....
