“Best Ranch Dressing in Town”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We have lived in San Jose for over 4 years and have only gone to the container for drinks. Today we ventured out taking the kids bike riding around the marina and stopping for lunch at the Container. It was a cold day so the kids ordered clam chowder, I ordered tortilla soup and husband got a burger. The tortilla soup was one of the bests I have had in Los Cabos. The clam chowder not so much. We requested to send the clam chowder back and order fries instead with ranch. We always order ranch wherever we go for fries and we have never found a restaurant here that gets it. The Container does and it was the best we have had. Eight thumbs up from us.

What really impressed us was that the manager, Jean Paul, came out to apologize for the clam chowder disappointment. Can't say that even the finest restaurants in Los Cabos would have their managers come out to the tables to make sure their patrons are happy. Great place, great atmosphere, good food, good prices and great service. We will be going back over and over again.

After a whale watching tour we stopped by for lunch and a drink. Typical menu with salad, sandwiches, burger, quesadillas, fajitas. The quality was excellent, really fresh and tasty! Nice atmosphere on the patio with laid back music and a view of the marina.

“Service is non-existent here”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Went for a drink and a snack around 4pm. We were seated with menus and then ignored for 15 minutes so we left. There seemed to be alot of staff around and were only 5 other tables so did we become invisible?? Won't be trying a second time.
