Stopped here for lunch on our way up the PCH from San Diego to LA. There was three of us and we each ordered an appetizer to share. I had the sticky ribs, my wife had the lettuce wraps, and out friend had the Bali rolls. The consensus on the sticky rolls was that the flavor was off. The meat was tender and good but the flavor wasn't quite right. The consensus on the Bali rolls were those were very good. Highly recommended. The lettuce wraps were ok. The sauces are what made them. The components (chicken, veggies etc were very bland) but the sauces were good). All in all the place was ok. The artwork was outstanding. The service was great and in a good location. We would stop again.

Friendly and professional waitstaff, scrumptious food, menu with many different choices, great drinks. Food delivery was a little slow, but we were a party of 6, it was a busy Friday lunch hour, and everyone in our group ordered a different entree. Will visit again!

You never know what your going to get when you just walk in to a restaurant, without a recommendation or reservations. So we were very happy to be seated immediately. The staff was excellent. We were in a hurry to get to a play, so the waitress got our drinks and food promptly. I had the clam choder which was absolutely delicious. My regret was that I only ordered a cup. I should have ordered the bowl. The halibut entre was also delicious. Cooked perfectly. Would love to go back for more clam chowder and tatse some of the other entres'.

I have eaten here many times and have always had a great meal. Many sandwiches and burgers always make a great meal. The staff is very helpful and are always getting what you need. They also have display's of local artists painted pictures available for sale. Some outside dinning also. This location is on the main street with lots of shops to visit. It has a great bar area too!

It probably depends on the music and staff on any particular night. Our waitress deftly managed easy smiles and comments while tending to her area efficiently. As we were up close to the music, it would have been cumbersome to carry on much of a conversation. It seems like 1 of 2 places in San Clemente were you could both start and end a night of revelry.
