Great food and drinks! The bartender pours a great drink and the food is tasty. Easy entry and exit. Close to everything!

Wonderful waitress to make our meal with friends who are undergoing and will be faced with traumatic health issues a comfortable setting! We questioned the menu in detail and although this was a busy Saturday night, Tessa kept smiling and took the time to answer everything we wanted to know about the menu. The food was great, the water glasses refilled and Tessa remembered that two of us did not want ice in our glasses. We did have reservations and at first the young child at the next table made some noise, but luckily that stopped almost instantly. We were there for quite a long time and shared our dishes, but were never felt rushed!
I had been there twice before for lunch with different friends and the food and service was great then also.

We went there just by being in the area and it was delicious. I'm so glad we tried it out oir whole family. We got Grass fed Hamburgers, Chicken Quesidilla, and Hamakua Mushroom Tacos. We also had Sexy Breeze Cocktail. The service was nice a lil slow but very friendly. I would GO back again. LOVE the Unique Flavors
