We were a party of seven at the dinner hour. Plenty of good choices on the menu, busy, lighthearted atmosphere. Servers were eager and pleasant, food was good and also plenty. Good place for eating and catching-up.

Boulder Creek Brewery's twin means excellent beers on tap. Great burgers and appetizers - fried pickles YUM. Lively atmosphere, friendly and fun.

We stopped in for lunch on our honeymoon. The atmosphere was lively but relaxing, and our food was great. Too bad we couldn't try it all.

IT was not HORRIBLE and it was easy to find. NOT the cleanest by any means and they share the bathroom with other business (perhaps the reason why the cleaning schedule suffers). The food was eh... but would not go out of my way to find it. I ordered the Clam chowder soup thinking it will be fresh (being close to the ocean and all) but I was disappointed ...maybe because we got there 30 mins before closing? so the cook barely had time to open the can add tabasco (lots of it) sauce and placed it in the microwave for to long? but between the tabasco sauce and the chewy consistency the soup was nothing to write home about.... (good music tho)

So yummy. A fun selection. Never leave hungry. AMAZING hot wings, really good side salad, OUT OF THIS WORLD burgers. Everything is always great and the service is wonderful. Never had a bad experience there out of the probably 50 times Ive been there!
