Had three chicken bar-b-q sliders which only had 5-8 shreds of cole slaw each. The chicken was fine except it was not well shredded and had fairly large pieces of chicken in each. Also had steak which was very average tasting but tender. The garlic mashed potatoes had a very strange bad taste which I could not identify.

Thank Ben A

We ate lunch here on a Sunday when it wasn't busy. There were 2 other tables seated. It took over 30 minutes for our food and the food was bland to say the least. The buffalo chicken dip was recommended but tasted like fish, not spicy, and very bland. The open faced salmon sandwich was overlooked, underseasoned, and dry. After... More

I want to love this place BUT.... it's a complete different experience every time we go. If you have a great server, beware...there may be a shift change, you need to start a new tab and your next server could be a ghost leaving you with empty glasses and very little attention. I order the same food every time I... More

Attended a work Christmas party in the downstairs room. Servers were great. Food was good. We had a buffet, steak was really good and pork and beans were delicious. The "avacado sauce" and chimichurri sauces tasted fresh and home made. I thought the Cuban eggrolls were pretty good, but some thought they were a bit dry. Only 2 things could... More

My buddy and I came here on a lark, while our wives were enjoying themselves elsewhere with a group of their friends, a ladies night out, and we were just chauffers. this place had it's own parking lot, a rarity in this area, but definitely a plus.

How about a quaint getaway in the middle of hustle and bustle! Located right on busy Kennedy Blvd, they have done a great job of creating an oasis to step out of all the action for a while. Good place for lunch and dinner. The food is good, the service is good, the atmosphere is quaint. They have outdoor seating... More

We sat outside and listened to the live music. It was hot, but they have plenty of fans (sometimes it's a bit too much). I had a mango mimosa and the eggs benedict. My husband had the breakfast sliders and a cronut. Our food was decent - even though he was a bit disappointed with his cronut, the breakfast potatoes... More

Because this is a converted home, there are only a few parking spaces. Valet parking is provided or you can park elsewhere and take a walk to the Bungalow. We choose to eat indoors despite the lovely patio with heat lamps due to traffic noise outdoors. Bring a sweater as it's chilly inside! Good service, great beer and tasty wings.... More

We drove over for brunch on Sunday and ordered the Breakfast Sliders and the Spicy Caribbean Hash . My boyfriend doesn't like sweet things and the sliders have a hint of sweetness to them, I liked them but he will try something different next time. I ordered the hash and to be honest there was nothing spicy about it, I... More

They make the best of an old bungalow. Charming. The patio, although on a very busy street, was surprisingly quiet with a nice setting of palms all around. My Mango siracha chicken bowl was very good. My husband had the California Club (minus the middle bread) which was also very good. The only drawback is the parking. Very limited.

Thank Roberta C
