The happy hour drinks (mojitos $5) and the happy hour food menu is good too. The regular entrees are delicious - (trout is my fav). Professional servers and nice atmosphere.

I met a few friends for drinks and appetizers. Drinks were good and the food was fantastic. Service was very friendly and the food was served promptly with a smile.
