I'd rate the service as horrible had we ever been waited on. We were seated then had another table seated right next to us. They were greeted and drink orders taken. I assume our table was being handled by the same waiter. He looked our way several times but never spoke or acknowledged us. They weren't busy at all. The... More

Drove by this place on the way into town and came back for lunch. Sat outside with a great view. Food was good/very good. Service was friendly. A couple sat down next to us not long after we arrived and it must have been a shift change and unfortunately they didn't get waited on, so they left. I'm sure they... More

We ate here twice the week of October 23rd. On the first visit, three had the trout and liked it. I had a salad, buffalo chicken wings and ordered chips & salsa for the table. The salad & wings were good, but the chips were soggy. When I mentioned it to the server, she asked if I wanted a to... More

Beef brisket chimichanga was excellent with their house made habanero mango salsa. Just hot enough but not too hot.

We had a nice lunch and Canyons today. I had shrimp tacos and my husband had the chicken maui sandwich. The food was good and generous portions. Our server checked in regularly with us and was very pleasant. My only comment would be that the atmosphere is quite noisy. They have a loud band in the restaurant and then when... More

The food was outstanding. The view was incredible. The place is older. A quaint "hole in the wall". It was recommended by some locals and was worth the stop. Great little place.
