Enjoyed dinner there one night recently while staying in Luquillo. Enjoyed the fun and unique decor and had a great dinner. Menus leans toward american which suited us just fine. The owner stopped by to make sure all was fine which is always appreciated.

Cynthia was fantastic! She suggested a vast of appetizers that were all great... Good food can be served anywhere, but great service is hard to find. Thank you!

Food was good as usual, but service by Cynthia was the best in a long time and at other restaurants. We loved the quesadillas. They were super crunchy. Still, Cynthia was the highlight. 4 stars food amd 5 for her.

It's not always easy finding a spot that pleases all 5 of my family members. This place did it! Steak, grilled cheese, buffalo wings, huge sandwiches... yum! We walked in exhausted from hiking the rainforest; we walked out refreshed, happy, and ready to kayak!

Food was amazing. Desserts are incredible. Cynthia was a fantastic waitress. Would highly recommend even if it has American foods. All well prepared.

The menu looks great - I ordered the Ribs because of the reviews. I didn't like them so much. The fries were really yummy however. Wine list is very poor. The restaurant wasn't bad at all just won't be a favorite and may not come again because I like others so much more. Very American menu.

We happened upon this hidden gem one late night after a long day of shopping. We were famished! Pepin, our server, recommended the ribs..&...wow! They literally fall off the bone! The sauce is homemade. The salsa was great! Even the key lime pie was mouth watering!! JB, the owner, is so nice & laid back! We will definitely be back!

We ordered a delicious skirt steak served on a sizzling platter and ceviche, which was very chunky. Good value for the $, and the drinks were great, too. The owner has some funky decor on the walls. Highly recommend this laid-back bar/restaurant in Luquillo.
