Find your way into the corner of a small strip mall down below ground level to cellar. Great atmosphere but it did not deliver on the outstanding reviews. Good service. Check out the current menu options online.

One of the best attributes of a great restaurant is consistency in food quality and service. This restaurant scores a 10 in both categories. This is my fourth trip over the last two years and it remains awesome.

Sounds like a good combination...your entree comes with a soup and salad which we thought was a good value. We had the chicken and potato wrapped halibut which were both good. Not the best food I’ve ever head but certainly in the good category. Service...More

Extremely casual. Long Beach is a resort community. We were in shorts and t- shirts and fit right in, however there were folks dressed for dinner as well. Comfortable atmosphere across the board.
