If you stay too long the staff gets upset, so no lunch meetings for local business people here! I tried this once and some redheaded lady manager almost bit off my nose!

Hit the spot and was recommended by waitress when I inquired- that was 5 star. My son ordered spicy buffalo wings which were not spicy at all and the ranch was very thin and bland - perhaps watered down bc it was tasteless.

We had mahi mahi tacos and fried zucchini. They are OK, but very pricey....due to walking distance to beach. マヒマヒタコとフライドズッキニーは普通です。ビーチに近いロケーションのせいか、値段は高いです。

Wasn’t so quick. My server kept forgetting that I was on the patio but then acted like I was going to run off without paying. If that was going to happen I would have took off in the 25 min window of no service.
