Went here again this year and we were all very happy with it again. Went with a group of 9 and sat outside away from the TVs.

The General's staff really does a tremendous job. Efficient, polite, attentive - everything you'd want - and I don't think it was because the actual General was sitting at the next table with friends - it's been consistant every time we've gone.

The food was all very good - all came out at the same time (doesn't always happen with 9 people), and all was still hot.
Got the bucket of beers - very cold beer here.

Don't go if you abolutely require a quiet dining experience - there is often some "important" ball game on and some of the customers will undoubtedly be cheering their favorite team while you're eating. Just don't worry about it - it's a sports bar - and enjoy the service and good food.

This is the place to go to watch a game or yuck it up with a group of friends.However if you want a quite dinner out,then this is not the place,as it can get pretty noisy.I found the food to be pretty average.

Spent 2 weeks in Ixtapa and ate at the General's 3 times! Great food - the staff is amazing and we love the General! Super Bowl was a great party! Can't wait to see all of them again next year!
