We had 3 cheese grilled cheese sandwich that was most delicious! Served with fries or greens or sweet potato fries. Full service wine and... More

This is a great local restaurant with very interesting food. We like the calamari and their skillet breakfasts. They also have a taco option with a cheese "tortilla." It's delicious, but better bring a huge appetite or a few people to share it with! The waitstaff is knowledgeable and fun! They also have a great happy hour. Try some of... More

Came here from a local recommendation and found out it was happy hour menu. Ordered the calamari and spicy shrimp and both were great. The calamari was amazing. Now trying the banana bread pudding. I will let you know.

This place has a really nice atmosphere near the beach on 101 in Encinitas. There were six of us, each having something different, and all very satisfied. Everything was well prepared, hot and quite tasty. We would come back here again.

I like this place but on our most recent visit, it was crowded and we were placed way in the back section, the cost was on the high side and the food was good but not so good that you were thrilled. This place used to be a funky local secret that had great food and now it seems to... More

A treat to find a restaurant that will take reservations for happy hour. Funky, fun and affordable! We had a party of eight who wanted to be seated where the tv's were visible. They made it happen with ease. The menu selections had something for all eight to enjoy!

Wonderful Happy Hour menu 4-6 pm even on a Sat. & Sun. Excellent service and great sangria options. Would go again for a meal off the main menu.

Live music, good drinks, packed house and tons of seating. The menu was an eclectic mix to pick from. Our party ordered filet, sea bass, halibut and paella. Fish was fantastic, steak cooked to order but was cold and unfortunately I was disappointed with my paella and wished I ordered the sea bass. Wasn't major though as the service, environment... More
