It is a small dive with a bar at the entrance and with perhaps 16-18 dining tables. It is a small bar where people seem to know each-other. When I walked a few steps to the restaurant section, the delicious aroma awoke my appetite. Chips and salsa are not included at the seating, but it is only a $1.50. I... More

This is a local favorite with delicious tacos and margaritas! The view can't be beat! The Cove-style wings are the best I have ever had! There really isn't a bad dish here!

Order the Tortilla soup with Chicken, it's one of the best soups EVER, anywhere. Another must have is the bacon wrapped shrimp, then add guacamole, a beer, or Margarita and you will be completely satisfied. Sports on the bar monitor, fun local crowd.

Visits to most restaurants is based upon the reviews completed by previous visitors. This restaurant has mostly good reviews. We did not find much to be positive. Atmosphere was very loud. Tables and chairs were made of plastic & very uncomfortable. Service was acceptable. However, the quality of the food was at best fair. This included fajitas, burritos, carnitas and... More

Love this place! Fun local hangout. Good drinks and good eats. Food is very reasonably priced and a good assortment to choose from. Fun for a midday Sunday hangout.

Wait for a table outside. The view was breathtaking. Food was just average and a little on the plain side. The bar out front seemed like a fun place. We were able to find parking on the street and while we waited for the breakfast to lunch switch, we found public access to a quiet secluded beach.
