Went there for dinner, the food is soo good, especially with some Modelo Beer, took our family members there and we were seated right away, from what we were told that hardly ever happens. Our server was very nice and our food was delicious.

We have been going to this location a few times a year. We've never thought of it as a great restaurant but it's always been decent and the views are awesome. They are currently renovating which was not a major problem. We ordered their El...More

The meal was enjoyable, despite the wait. The restaurant is currently being refurbished, and the bar is closed (therefore no beers on tap, but they do have a decent selection of bottled beers). They were able to make margaritas, and they made the best of...More
