My family made reservation for 4 ppl at 5:30, and we wanted to try the XXL coconut crab. However we had some problem with our schedules, so we called to push our reservation to 7:30. When we got there at 7:13, the waitress told us to wait until 7:30 ..which we did. And when it was time another waitress told... More

Went here on a whim, didn't look too fancy from the outside, however, it was once you got inside. We ate outside and had oysters and a 2lb ribeye (wow). Everything was very good, presented and plated professionally. Wait staff was friendly and informative. Will go back.

Me and my family ate there on a Friday evening, we didn't reserve a table but could still sit in about 20 min. The staff is constantly running around, they try to be attentive but of course something will be missed here and there... Our table wasn't cleaned properly and the plastic menus would stick on it; we also had... More

Had a great steak dinner that melts in your mouth. You could see the seafood are fresh as the staff picks them from the aquarium upon ordering. The staff are great, we asked about the bus stop and they offered us a free ride to kmart lol

I have been to few restaurants in Guam and tried steak and lobster dinner set. This is the best I've tried. I read some comment in tripadvisor saying that Core is over priced. I don't think so. The price is reasonable when they are serving high quality of food. Delicious!

Went in on my trip with my wife. We weren't that late (8pm) but got the last lobster, so make sure you head in early. The surf and turf set that we got was tasty, but the salad that came with it was a 5c amount of lettuce on a small plate. Also. They were crazy busy, which meant long... More

The atmosphere is good. The staff are always with smiling faces. The food is fresh. The steak is bit over done to me. I haven't tried the lobster but it looks good when I saw it on other tablessss. The lobster is very popular in the restaurant. The dancers also turn up the guest a lot with close encounter with... More
