“Newport Beach Staple”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

A staple in Newport Beach for many years. Nice location on the water and pleasant surroundings. but the restaurant needs to update its menu to reflect the location. I can't say much more than that. Noisy, lots of people, a party atmosphere.

“Good food, poor organisation”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We went here on New Year's Eve. When we booked we were specifically asked if we wanted to sit upstairs or downstairs. When they explained the different types of entertainment between the two we picked upstairs. When we arrived on the evening they said they had our reservation but no record of the fact that we wanted to be upstairs. We were first given 2 options of a high table behind a screen with no view at all of the entertainment or along the sushi bar stuck between other people. Eventually we got a nice table in the next room to the entertainment. When our starters came, they got my wife's wrong. When our main course came, my steak was severely overdone to the point when I called the waiters over she immediately apologised and took it away without me even having to say anything. Which meant that again we were eating separately. The food was actually very tasty indeed when they got it right eventually. The staff was very friendly and apologetic but it still put a downer on what supposed to be a lovely night out. Even the food was very good, we will not be going back

“A bit disappointed!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

I have been eating at this place for over 30 years. But my last visit was a bit disappointing.. I ordered a non spicy Bloody Mary that was so full of pepper it was awful. I have never had such a bad drink. I ordered fish and chips. The chips were good but the fish coating was hard and not tasty. And the service was soooo slow. Two hours for lunch is too long in much opinion. We waited over 45 minutes for our entree,

“Multi-generational fun”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

In town visiting and was told this was a great place to go (situated right on the water and nice mix of seafood and steak). We all enjoyed the unique setting and, if you are a baseball fan, had a lot of fun looking at a wide assortment of baseball memorabilia on display. On balance, we all enjoyed our food...some loved their choices (salmon, chicken) but others not as much (mixed seafood platter). I would go back as service was great and it's location and uniqueness make this worth another try.

“delicious food, scenic location!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Great service, delicious food! We had the seared swordfish and fish tacos. Fresh, cooked to perfection. Something for everyone. Beautiful scenic setting on the water.
