Based on previous reviews I believe that my expectations were a just bit too high. My husband and I had different entrées. They weren’t terrible, but we both said we would not have ordered it again.

Kid friendly, small and cozy. Great white jalapeño sauce for chips, be warned, not gluten free! Also red rice is not Gluten free. Marguerites were amazing. Kids meal was delectable. Cesar salad was delicious with tiny shrimp. Reasonably priced and very family friendly. We will return! :-)

The food was good. The service was good. The drinks were good. The ambiance was fun, even though not right on the beach. Overall, nothing extraordinary, but good.
