If you're looking for a "quiet" dinner, this is not the place. The food was good, not great. The service was also good, not great. My main complaint was that we had a 6PM reservation, we arrived at 6PM but were not seated until 6:20PM....More

Local musicians on the weekend make this the place to be when you don't feel like cooking and want to enjoy yourself. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening feels like an impromptu barbecue. The food is average, drinks are good and the staff is excellent!

If you can get a table outside, this is one of the better outdoor dining options on a nice night. It gets crowded, but the atmosphere is great, there's often live music, the service is always good and the food is always solid. Fish tacos,...More

Clare & Don's is probably best known for their beachy atmosphere. Outside tables and seating are made from surfboards and citrus crates. Kids love the beach vibe and the menu has something for everyone.

There is an adequate and free city-owned lot behind the restaurant. Parking is not a problem.
