“Great oysters and great people - felt like my home town place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stopped by late at night for several plates of oysters in several styles. Oh my... awesome oysters indeed! And some great fish tacos as well. Fish was fresh and the tacos were seasoned just right. And the staff is great, lots of fun, very open and friendly. First place I'm heading for when I go back. Seriously, this place rocks. Go there, nuff said?

“Ruben & Ozzy's a Big Hit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We were steered to Ruben & Ozzy's by our hotel receptionist and she was right on! The two owners, who opened their own place recently after getting a reputation at another restaurant, work like demons behind the counter and serve up some outstanding food. I rate this one highly for service, good food, ambience and location. Don't miss it.

“Great new addition to PS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Had both lunch and dinner here within the past few days. The service was great both times. Staff was knowledgable and very attentive. The shrimp tacos on the lunch menu are to die for and the seafood skewer on the dinner menu was cooked perfectly. The patio in the evening has much more ambiance than during the day, but the food is the big draw.

“cold food and appetizer afterwards”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

After a long wait, the dishes we had ordered finally arrived. The chicken fettuccine was cold and we asked the waitress to have it warmed up. The appetizer never arrived at all. Apparently some of the wait personnel either don't speak English or don't communicate with each other. The chicken fettuccine actually never came back. It just disappeared. This restaurant is a disaster.

“Great food, great people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Sit at the bar and enjoy the show. Ruben is great chef that makes everyone feel welcome. Recommend the fish tacos and the Mexican poke. This place seems to be new and still under the radar but sure to become a local favorite.
