Very pleasant atmosphere with a very pleasant server. Definitely had a pirate/tiki bar/beach theme. Food was delicious and very well priced for the amount of food you got. The 2 for 1 margaritas were ok but not the best I've had. Food arrived fast and...More

One step inside and you will think you are in Florida in a cheesy tiki bar because of all the beachy decorations. All on knotty pine walls. There was no wait to be seated and our hostess mumbled something about the food and drinks and...More

Mediocre, overpriced food. There really is nothing special about the food that merits the prices. Service is ok. I wouldn't visit again.

Ok..first the good: the prime rib/lobster special is a good thing, especially since the food was ok and the staff was open and polite also. So far..so good right? The bad: I dined here with a party of 8, everyone was satisfied overall until we...More

The prices are TOO HIGH for the quality of food. I had the chicken parm that came with linguine. The flavor was bland, the sauce was watery and the pasta was over cooked. The dish was $18.99 and did not include a salad or soup....More

I had the special, steak kabobs. Decent. Others had burgers and a foot long Hoffman's hot dog, which she raved over. As it was a bit after the usual lunchtime, there was only one overworked waitress on duty. She did her best, but they could...More
