I wouldn't make a special trip to this bar, but it is very convenient if you are staying on site. It was surprisingly busy on all four nights we were there, so they must be doing something right.

Good foot, but very noisy. Try the chicken fajitas nachos or the stuffed avacado. But beware the place is very very loud.

Casual works during the day but you will want to dress up a little in the evening. Not a dress code but you would feel uncomfortable in shorts and flip flops.
