“Great for Lunch and Dinner”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We ate there twice once for lunch which was amazing. The salads and fish tacos were spectacular and the tuna app was amazing. We later went back for dinner which was sushi and which was also very good. Not the best I have ever had but very good.

“Excellent and delicious Sushi”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This place has the best food, is delicious and just insanely excellent. I think it's one of the best places to get food on the west coast, the sushi is great, the egg rolls and the sake, everything excellent.

I think the staff or the servers (waitress, bartender or etc) should be more friendly, sometimes they look like they want to get everything done or with attitude, and sometimes they ignore you. wish they could work on that.

Other than that the place is nice, nice music always and good environment.

Wish you guys closed later than 10pm, because its really good. :)

“Sushi galor...”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I have been to the Pool Bar several times and the atmosphere and sushi were FANTASTIC! The staff is friendly, the patrons are enjoyable to be around and there is a POOL for the kids to swim in before and after the meal. The sushi is very reasonably priced and this "off the beaten path" restaurant is a relaxing way to wind down from a tough day of surfing or enjoying the beaches of Rincon.

“Delicious sushi! Fun place to be.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The sushi options were awesome! And the tempura vegetable roll is outstanding! The sumo sauce, aka spicy mayo, not really spicy. It stinks because you have to get your own drinks from the bar. They only bring sake to the table. And if it is super busy, the service isn't the best, but that is normal I think with most restaurants. But the food and price is awesome! The rum punch good use a new recipe.

“Excellent sushi, fun atmosphere, average service.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We ate here twice for dinner during our stay in Rincon. The sushi was really good both times. Service was good the first night, probably a little below average the second. The biggest downside to this restaurant is that you cannot order drinks while eating your dinner. The bar is separate from the restaurant and you have to walk yourself up to the bar to get the drinks. For us, it was more pleasurable when we just sat at the bar, as we were able to order food and drinks and just relax and not have to wait to be served drinks standing at the bar. The atmosphere is completely unique and unlike any restaurant I've been too. You know you are in a surfer town when you dine here, but the patrons are very diverse.
