“A great meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

This was one of the best meals we ate on our trip! We got the special for lunch, which was totally delicious, and a great price! The view of the bay was fantastic! On the minus side, the service was not that good. Not many people there at the time of day we visited, and we probably would have stayed and relaxed longer, and had another drink if the waitress had showed up to offer us one...

“"I'll go somewhere else"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

The food was so-so; the calamari has tiny strips of squid with more batter than anything else. We also ordered the mahi-mahi fish tacos- that was okay. the accompanying bean soup tasted blah. The service though was good- the waiter was attentive. You pay for the view- not the food.

“Great restaurant! Great view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

You can seat by the bay and have a fantastic view! The restaurant is fun and nicely decorated. The kids always enjoy going there because of the atmosphere and the little shops around it... Their food came inside a little paper boat and they loved it! Service was great even though it was Memorial weekend and I was expecting the worse...

“Nice atmosphere, decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice during a week stay at SPI. First visit I had the mahi mahi tacos. They were OK...too fishy for my taste. Second time I had the taco salad. It had really good flavor but could use more meet and toppings as there was a lot of lettuce. Others in our party had fajitas and said they good and the shrimp tacos and said they were too salty. I do really like the atmosphere of this place and the location, which is why we went back. They also have some delicious apple butter biscuits!

Air contidioning not cool. Saw lots of empty tables but still had a short wait. Food was only so-so. Mushy rice, charro beans were hard to find in the bowl. Maybe 3 spoonfuls. Great waiter and location were ONLY good things

There is always a manager on duty to discuss any issues or concerns. We had no issues or complaints on that day. Also, we find it coincidential you only have one review and that appears to be suspicious.
