Been replaced by Nico's. Not a loss. Or a gain. It was good for the occasional visit but the food was indifferent.

Not too sure what the theme is, but the food was average at best. I was hoping for some good bar food and I didn't even get that. It seems everything was out of a can and then microwaved.

Returned to the islands for a visit and hit an old hangout. Still fun, nice ambiance, but the food is not as good as it had been. They still make a great Mai Tai!

One of the more lively spots in the area. Mix of diner, restaurant, bar, sports bar, and local social action.
