Went in for the Monday specials - $2 taco. Thoroughly enjoyed the rockfish tacos. Tried the Blue Moon mango wheat beer and fell in love. Adam, our waiter, was great.

Nice selection on their bar happy hour menu. I had a really good Caesar salad and bang bang shrimp for $6 each. I would definitely go back for their food and cocktails.
