The Mexican food is upstairs and bar food downstairs. A little confusing if you haven't been there before. Food was hot and good. Margaritas good but pricey. Server was great but hostesses should be more on point when seating family next to a vet large...More

I almost didn't go because I read some negatives reviews, but I'm glad we did. We had a great table to catch the ocean breeze. We had great service from Ashley S. Beers were cold, food was hot. Tacos were fine and very filling. The...More

We went to Spicy's for dinner and got seated right away at a very small table, which was pretty uncomfortable. We waited almost 20 minutes for a waitress to come over to take our drink order. She was less than thrilled to be at work...More

The restaurant was busy, but we were seated right away. However, it was a small table which proved to not be big enough for what we ordered. The margaritas were decent, and we enjoyed the chips and salsa. My friend got the chicken quesadilla, which...More

We ate here on a beautiful evening and were able to get a table on the balcony - great view of the beach/boardwalk - pretty Margaritas and good food.

We were looking for an air conditioned, sit down restaurant. Having not had a good meal in our travels yet, we looked forward to something good. We tried one or two other places we saw advertised, but none were acceptable. So we felt lucky to...More

Outside seating was perfect for what we were looking for. The margaritas are amazing. Our sever Toni was great even though it was her second day. It does get busy though. So once you can get a table it's great.

We came here mostly for the atmosphere and mango margaritas. We had dined here last summer and the food was great. This time I was looking forward to the chips and salsa but they were a little bland. Our entrees came out super fast because...More

This is a sit-down restaurant. I believe that one of the dishes served was a dish that included a couple of tacos, refried beans etc., but it is not a take -out place.

We walked upstairs and waited to be seated upstairs. They asked us if we wanted inside or outside - It was beautiful outside - great view.
