The food there was not fresh, the ahi tuna was fishy tasting and the pork was rancid. Complained and they took off less than $2. Big deal, meal was $45, couldn't even eat most of it.

This takes you back to the 60's. It has great food. They have 2 places on one of the windows showing how far the water came up back in 1957 and 1960 thought that pretty cool. The prices as very reasonable.

Went here for my birthday with friends and it was a good choice. We went late, after the lunch hour rush and found it very quiet so got attentive service! Its a little tricky to find but worth looking for.

Stopped in for lunch and decided we had eaten more than enough seafood during the past week. Settled on their classic hamburger with waffle fries. Great burger, large enough for my wife a I to share. Good, prompt service, all at a reasonable price.

Minimum selections for the salad bar. Food is heavy and unhealthy. I was charged ten cents when I asked for a plastic spoon to eat my left overs. Ordered an late and it was more like coffee and half milk with no foam.
