This is my second time eating here and it was a nice evening. Our waiter was efficient and the food was ample portions. I ordered the shrimp dinner and it came with 16 shrimp. My husband’s burger was quite large.

Lots of TV’s. Seems to be where Army fans gather for games. The service is fast and friendly. Tried the steak poutine. Not as good as picture looked. Not much taste. Full bar. Parking can be tricky in Baldwin Park. Nice view of lake.

Nice big and open place in the heart of Baldwin Park. Nice views of the lake. Seats are available inside and outside. Friendly staff. Food is average but not bad. I guess for the price it’s not bad at all. I will recommend this place...More

Today was my second visit to this particular restaurant, and yet again I was disappointed. Initially, the table was not clean. However, our waitress was courteous and attentive, but my shrimp tacos were mediocre at best. The shrimp were tasty, but the avocado looked and...More

Located in a great location, outside seating is a most. Had beer and wings, both were good. Wings were inconsistent, ordered two favors one was completely over cooked but were still tasty. 4 star mainly because of service, kitchen was slow and place was understaffed.
