Definitely would recommend this place! They have great food and a cool atmosphere. It can get crowded and is only a small place so don’t be surprised if there’s a wait. But it’s absolutely worth it! I would recommend their “Crack Fries”....literally so amazing.

It's cold and it's snowing so we tried out a spot within walking distance of our hotel. Pleasantly surprised with great drinks and one of the best quesadillas we've had. Great find by the water, assuming even better in warmer weather.

Great variety of taco fillings. The 2 tacos per order might not be enough for someone with a larger appetite - you might want to order a side. Nacho Tuesdays and Taco Thursdays are good deals. Dining areas downstairs and another upstairs with a harbor...More

The two of us both had the fish tacos, which were perfect for us but those with a bigger appetite might want to order something in addition. We also split the red sangria which was flavored with cinnamon and cloves, great for a winter day....More
