Well, it did not last but it was good while it did. They had a fantastic lunch at a good price. There was music also in the eve. Lovely building but I hear the rent is too high.

The people here are so rude and inattentive. I mean, do you want a tip or not? Seriously, its like you are ruining their day, just by coming through the entrance. And to top it off, the food isnt great. Depending on the bartender, you...More

By eating just before the "evening rush" our pre-dinner cocktail was only 99 cents, a Margarita. The food that followed was very good, well served by a friendly waitress. The price for the meal was very reasonable compared with other outlets nearby.

I found this restaurant to be overpriced with mediocre (at best) food. I went with a group of people, and almost all of them complained about the food. Almost nothing on the menu sounded appetizing, so I went with a chicken dish because I've found...More

This restaurant has a hard time finding itself. The food is good: fresh fish, interesting menu, but bland execution. The wait staff: friendly and attentive. The drinks: WHOA, DO NOT DRINK HERE! The entertainment that night, a reggae band, sang one reggae song for the...More

The portions were large, service was prompt and an amiable atmosphere. We visited here on a restaurant.com promotion. The 99 cent margaritas were not available with the restaurant.com coupon and we had to pay 2.99. Otherwise there were no complaints.
