“Dry food, bad drink”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was anxious to visit the newest restaurant in Blythe. My experience was not pleasant. There is a separate noisy bar, and a dining room. But there are also TVs in the dining room.

The service was fine. I asked for a Mai Tai, one of the drinks featured on the menu. It was so sweet that I couldn't drink it (too much grenadine). So I ordered a red wine instead. I wasn't very hungry, so I ordered sliders. The meat was good, but the rest wasn't. The bread was dry sliced French bread with no sauce on it; I had to ask for mayo and catsup. The waiter assured me the fries were great - they were cold.

To top it off? When I got the bill, the returned Mai Tai was still on it. It took a while, but the waiter finally got the charge removed.

An unpleasant, noisy experience.

“A foodie oasis has been filled in Blythe!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Wow open two months ago and both the food and staff is already a foodies delight.
Our server James rocked the house knows the menu and all the full bar section.
From burgers, steaks, Salads, interesting starters to a few well re imagined stuffed Chile poblano this definite a place to share a meal.
Will definitely stop here again.

“Not for vegetarians”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was amazed to visit this new restaurant with a nice classy atmosphere, and find only one vegetarian item on the menu (stuffed chiles). When I asked my server if they had veggie burgers, she told me that they would be adding it to the menu because it is so often requested, with an air of "who knew there are people who don't eat meat!" I ordered sides, and was extremely disappointed when my "sauteed seasonal vegetables" turned out to be soggy broccoli with a few red onions. Most of the others in my party were disappointed with their small serving sizes and bland food.
