Had a great steak dinner that melts in your mouth. You could see the seafood are fresh as the staff picks them from the aquarium upon ordering. The staff are great, we asked about the bus stop and they offered us a free ride to kmart lol

I have been to few restaurants in Guam and tried steak and lobster dinner set. This is the best I've tried. I read some comment in tripadvisor saying that Core is over priced. I don't think so. The price is reasonable when they are serving high quality of food. Delicious!

Went in on my trip with my wife. We weren't that late (8pm) but got the last lobster, so make sure you head in early. The surf and turf set that we got was tasty, but the salad that came with it was a 5c amount of lettuce on a small plate. Also. They were crazy busy, which meant long... More

The atmosphere is good. The staff are always with smiling faces. The food is fresh. The steak is bit over done to me. I haven't tried the lobster but it looks good when I saw it on other tablessss. The lobster is very popular in the restaurant. The dancers also turn up the guest a lot with close encounter with... More

It'll cost you more than $100 to have a date here and the food I a not worth it. Very basic stuff. Crowded and not very comfortable. Great staff but the owners are pretty rude. I won't be going back... ever.

They offer the ridding service after dinner which is amazing. Food is good. I would say the lobster is pretty fresh. Kids enjoy very much. If you want to have BBQ, it's the place you can't miss.

Well I mean I don't know anywhere else I can eat the coconut crab so they are special. The crab is not cheap and it IS ALOT of work to eat it, definitely 2x harder than any other crab to eat. Meat is dry but sweet and there is not that much meat. Lets just say I would try it... More
