“What a delightful surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Driving over to St. Michael's for a weekend stay from Virginia, this was the first place we ate, and the last place we ate before we left. We had a GREAT time here.

Small, cozy and warm. That describes the place and the vibe. Nice fireplace in the middle, a handful of tables, and the best hostess/bartender we had during our stay (hi Christine!).

Oh...the food. Most excellent! Really interesting twists on Tex-Mex without meat, and it was all light and delicious.

We had a range of things, from the salmon & blue cheese burrito (HUGE...share it unless you are really hungry), crab dip quesos with sprouts, an amazing tomato soup, and the best fish tacos we've had in a long time (Cayman Islands 2 yrs ago).

And the best part...terrific margaritas. Order them with Patron & no ice for the maximum flavor. My wife had a regular, I had the pomegranate. Well, being honest, more than one. ;)

We love this place so much, we stopped on the way home to order takeout (since out lunch meal was less than ideal...see my other review.)

You'll dig this place. I hate to see what the traffic is like in the summer. I bet it's hard to get a table because it's just that good.

“Fun, Eclectic, Interesting Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stopped in here for a mid-afternoon drink Thanksgiving weekend. We were between meals so only had an appetizer and a drink. Sherri, the bartender was great. It is an interesting place with outdoor seating. Unfortunately too cold for us. Can’t wait to go back for lunch or dinner.

“Amazing tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I've never had anything like the crab taco with guac, old bay, and ginger. The price may seem high but you get sooo much crab (same with the tilapia burrito (burrito of the day). Absolutely wonderful. The staff was great and the margaritas were perfect. I wanted to go back the next day, but alas they are closed on Mondays.

“Had a great time as well as a great meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Decided to eat here on our third night in St Michaels. It is a very small, funky kind of place. On Wednesday they had $.99 sangrias which were very good. We had salmon burritos and crab tacos - they were delicious. Bartenders' family showed up for an impromptu reunion - they apologized for being noisy - but they were not, It was fun being in a lively place and they made us feel at home. This is the kind of place you remember long after the vacation is over. Be sure to give them a try when in St Michaels.
