I sat out on the deck, everyone was friendly, they were very busy. I had the Chef's Steak Special of the day. Steak was tender with lots of flavor. Would definitely go back.

Great menu with not your typical fare, yet surely something for every taste - from fresh Ceviche, to crab Tacos, to excellent meat (steaks/burgers). Interesting drink options, friendly service, lively and energetic vibe.

There is a path to the street from the patio. I do not recall if it would be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or if it was even paved. I would call to confirm.
