“Ok”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

This is a "hole in the wall" sports bar and restaurant. It has OK food. The service is good and has a great view. I have been here twice in the last five years. The food was really good the first time but not as good this time. If you're really hungry or hung over this could the place for you. I don't think I'll eat here on my next trip in June, I am going to check out another hole in the wall restaurant.

“Run the other way!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

First bad review I have ever written, but you need to be warned. This place was the worst I have ever been in! Mexican food? Yeah, right. All they did was throw some grated cheese on some stale nachos and heated. Awful, awful, awful! Also, the tea tasted like swamp water. Everything about the restaurant was bad. If I had visited the restroom first, I would have walked out before ordering.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

The best part of this restaurant was the view of the ocean from the balcony and the ability to hear the outside music from The Hangout across the street. The inside is dark and eery looking. Our waitress, her 4th day on the job, was clearly not meant to be a server. She had no skills and even though we were 1 of 2 customers, she was no where to be found. The chips had a stale taste, salsa runny and not much flavor. The rest of the food was maybe a 3 out of a 5. They only take cash, but we didn't see that posted. Luckily we had cash. Would not go there again and would not recommend it. Save your money.

“$1 beer, free pool”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We didn't eat dinner here and probably won't based on reviews, but for a late night spot for that last beer and some free pool, it was great. It appears that each night they choose a beer that is $1 (the night we went it was Rolling Rock). Don't come here thinking it is a high class joint and that you will get some fancy beer for $1, or even a fancy pool table for free. In fact, the table we played on had a bizarre set of balls that included two of one ball and an orange ball with black marker on it for the 8 ball. Do we care? No. It's free. And we know nothing about pool, so whatever. There were the right number of solid balls and striped balls, so it's good enough for me. This appears to be the hang out once all the service workers nearby get off. We saw several young people sporting the shirts of various restaurants nearby. This means that there was almost no one there before midnight and then more and more people started showing up. It's a good late night hang out if you're not ready to go home yet.

“Wouldn't go back”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

After a long day of travel, we were looking forward to a refreshing margarita. What we got was just lemon flavored sugar water. Worst we have ever had. And the food was barely edible. Very little flavor and sure not worth the price as this restaurant is pretty pricy. To top it off, the restaurant wasn't clean.
