“Pretty good.”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We ate here twice during one weekend. The dinner was just ok, the breakfast was pretty good. My fish sandwich for dinner was pretty fried, and not all that flavorful. The service was just ok, had to get up and ask for condiments etc. We returned for breakfast and my eggs benedict was very good. My husbands Huevos Rancheros was basically a salad on a tortilla. He said it was ok. They have a full bar if you are interested in that, but were out of a couple of beers that were listed on the menu. Good location. Overall, it was better than average.

“Good food, OK service, great look and feel.”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

I like this place, there is just something about it. It's the look, the vibe, the sidewalk cafe feel. The food is pretty good too. They opened a bar next door that looks awesome.

“Great Food -- S L O W Service”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

For a relaxing Breakfast this is a great place to go. I don't know what is going on the kitchen but it takes forever to get your food. This past weekend, we were seated right away but were told it would be 45 minutes to get our food after we ordered -- and it was. This is not unusual as it has happened before, but if you are in the mood to relax and enjoy the Havasu weather and some good company then this is a great place to go.

Also, there are a few shops adjacent to the restaurant that you can visit. One place sells the absolute best Bloody Mary Mix I've ever had!

“This place either rocks or disappoints”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Since last year, the restaurant expanded to another building, next to the outside patio. Depending on when you go, the service is either fantastic, or they are too busy and overwhelmed and the wait can be 45-50 minutes for your food. The prices have increased substantually since last year. The fish fry went up to $12.95 (still delicious for all you can eat), the tuna sandwich is no longer grilled, the bread is toasted, outrageous at $8.95. The side salads are still excellent, but you pay an additonal $1.50 to get it instead of fried potatoes as a side. Burgers are in the $7-$9 range, again, overpriced. Think you get a better deal ordering breakfast, more food for the money. We are disappointed, the prices have really jumped in a year, and the portions have shrunk. Still, good food, but not a value anymore.
