I went to this bar to impress my girlfriend. She really likes margaritas, so I remembered this place has the best margaritas. Really, this place has the best margaritas. Austin made them and they’re amazing!

We loved the sushi and the Dynamite Shrimp! We had the greatest server ever! Philip served us after we tried to get seated at two other restaurants. We had a long day and Philip made our day and ensured we had a great meal/experience!
