First let me say that we have gone here the last two Thursday's because I just LOVE the super fresh dozen oysters on the half shell that are only $6.99 on Thursday along with the special of a $2 salty margarita. I love them so much that I had TWO orders of each this past Thursday for a grand total... More

Boys had medium rare burgers. One was greasy w/no pink other was really pink/red & not greasy. Homemade guacamole wasn't impressed I've had better ones. Mahi Taco tasted real fishy. Chicken taco was really good! Chips & pico was ok. Won't go back during our week vaca here.

We went for lunch and ordered a dozen raw oysters and 1/2 dozen cooked "parm" oysters for an appetizer. The oysters were a good size and tasted good. My only comment would be that it would be nice if the "cooks" scraped the oyster from the shell before serving it so the customer would be able to easily put the... More

We also had the lobsters and shrimp pasta and the kids loved that as well. Only issue is they gave the kids way to many fries which I recommend getting the fruit if you have... More

There were nine in our group and we were seated promptly for midweek lunch after 2pm. We got two orders of oysters which were fresh and perfect. The poke bowl was fresh, healthful, and tasted great. The tacos tasted amazing and fresh. I ordered 3 but in my opinion for the average person, 2 would be filling. I will definitely... More

There are a lot of employees on staff to ensure that everything runs efficient. The food is good and the portions are good. The atmosphere is great whether you are going as a couple or family and it is kid friendly too. Overall, I enjoy eating here and would recommend it to you too.
