We stayed nearby, walked here for dinner/drinks. The crew was great, the food was pretty good. Prime rib had a unique smokey flavor. Rib eye was cooked properly to order. Drinks generous. Yes, we would go back, nice quality, mellow ambiance.More

We were not impressed by the Blue Coast Grill. It took over 10 minutes just to get drinks and the food was slow as well. When it did come- it wasn’t worth the wait. My fish tacos barely had any actual fish and were swimming...More
