We've been here quite a few times and the best thing is how consistent they are with the food and service. I hate restaurants that are great one visit and the next is awful. This place has a cool drink menu and the food is...More

Love the atmosphere at this place. Live music, healthy menu options and delicious cocktails! Great for adults dining alone or families with children.

Eight of us spent just short of $180, and nothing was remarkable. Both the salmon and Mahi mahi were overcooked and dry. The french fries were not hot. It took 30 minutes for our orders to arrive. The restaurant was extremely noisy with many screaming...More
