This was a much younger crowd then what I would fit in to. That being said the waitress was friendly and helpful, beer was good and food was okay.

This restaurant is no longer there. It has been gone for a few months now. It was really good when it was there though.

I was not impressed with how uninviting the establishment was. From the mile long line, to the bouncer who was "eye balling" me as we showed our id's, to the bar tender who wouldn't serve us, to the waitresses that were "too busy" (maybe they were, but felt like they weren't there to "serve"). Maybe because I am no longer... More

We were directed by a local to this restaurant. I am shocked it is not boarded up by the Health Dept. Our friends were hungry and wanted to stay. It was like having dinner at a frat house, post party. Our waitress must have been stoned as she could not get the order correct from drinks to food. We had... More

Overall this place was ok but the service was so slow. Waited for a server, waited a long time for drinks but the food was good when it finally arrived. Wouldn't go back. Too many other great places in the area.

we had lunch there on a Sunday. The place was deserted at 11:30 am. I had the Ahi Tuna (Seared) salad. It was scant with tuna and sliced so thin, it must have been about 1-2 ounces of fish, if that. Prices were higher than portion size in my opinion. The rest of the salad was just OK. No presentation... More

This is my second meal in this lively sprawling joint. it's always a great meal for the price and the atmosphere is always jumping. This time my wife had a French Dip Sandwich and I had a Three Taco Plate: one whitefish, one shrimp, one calamari. Everything tasted excellent and we were well taken care of. With an two indoor...

Restaurant was packed when we arrived due to the Octoberfest being held next door. However, we were able to get a table on the front deck - was a lot of fun to watch all the people walk by. The fish tacos were fabulous!!

Mixed drink with no alcohol: $10 Terrible service Only thing strong here is the stale beer/urine smell. Even the menus stank of mildew
