Everything we tried here was delicious! I got to try the Korean BBQ, the steak was so tender and tasty. Don't think you could go wrong with that choice. The fish/chips platter was probably my favorite though. Service was good and attentive. Hope to return...More

Their menu is always updated and food is fresh. Their "fish n chips" platter is really tasty as well as their ribs. Service is good. Can get a little noisy.

Had lunch here. Marvelous salads- very fresh and tasty ingredients - portions large enough for two to share. Service was good as were the prices. Pleasant place to sit and converse. Would recommend and gladly return.

Visited here recently with business colleagues. The restaurant is huge by Bay Area standard. We had Calamari and Crab cakes for starters. Both very good. Had Lobster roll for main dish. Was delicious.

Our wait was only minutes before we were seated. We all ordered cocktails before our meals. We started out with the combo Poke. It was excellent. Our orders did not take that long to arrive. When they did, all our dishes were cooked to perfection....More

You'll need to call the restaurant. "Large" is a relative size. Good luck. I think you'll enjoy it.
