Took our dog for a meal on the patio one night of vacation. Onion rings were a great appetizer! Husband got the burger and said it was decent- I ordered Philly cheesesteak- a huge sandwich but very good! Casual atmosphere and good service.

Tuna tacos and beach wings are the best. Also the only place to get a good steak. I come back every time I am in town. Much Aloha!

We were recommended to go here by a friend, but once we saw the menu, we realized this wasn't what we were looking for. We decided to try it out anyways. The menu had your typical American grill foods. We had the Philly cheesesteaks, which...More
