I haven't tipped under 20% in over a decade until tonight. First off, there's no indoor seating currently. The patio was nice and had misters, although no one could feel them to enjoy being comfortable. It was 108 degrees today. I'm not sure why a...More

It was wonderful to find a sit-down restaurant during the partial shutdown due to COVID. They provided tables outside in a secluded area with shade and mist sprays. The food was excellent and it was a great dining experience.

We ate here the last night we were in town. It was so good that if we had eaten the first night we would have come back the next night. It was suggested by people at the hotel and was very good.

First time visiting and chose this place on previous reviews. Friendly staff, good food and nice atmosphere. Kids Mac&Cheeze was amazing. Green Chile mussels and fries was an odd combo but delicious. Outside dining was perfect.

We didn't realize that basically no restaurants are open in Carlsbad on Sunday evenings. So we came here not realizing that a reservation was pretty much a must. We arrived a little before 5 and we were seated at 5:35 for a party of 3....More

We do serve wine based alcohol cocktails. Though they are a bit lower in alcohol content, many people feel they can't tell the difference.

I am sorry, but shrimp are very costly and so most people do not opt to add it to salads. We think $7 for 4 descent-sized grilled shrimp is a pretty good deal. Again, these are not typical "salad" shrimp (the baby tiny... More
