This is our 'must do' restaurant whenever we're in town. Excellent food and drinks. Love to sit outside when the weather permits.

I had the pork chop. Very juicy and one of the best I had. The calamari appetizer was very good. Nice spice to it. The kids where happy for there was chicken fingers on the menu. The wife loved the skirt steak. Excellent dishes.

Salmon overdone, carrots underdone, beans were good. Half a beer arrived and were told the tap ran out, on the house. The bill begged to differ, $7.00 on the tab. Thanks Cassidy. This place has mediocre food. Pork chops were overcooked too. Check out downtown,...More

Great food and live entertainment. The combined smells of the ocean and food was amazing, coupled with the live band made me not want to leave. The food was a party in my mouth and the latin jazz band playing was a party in my...More
