Beware of happy hour specials. Extremely overpriced drinks. Server did not disclose and, in fact, we all felt we were tricked into ordering $4.99 appetizers with regular priced drinks, when drinks were $18.00 each, so bill for 4 of us was $120 for only one appetizer and one drink each.

Got there @ 11:20 just made it in time for the breakfast special. I has the two eggs two pancakes fruit & hot chocolate for $8. My boyfriend had a omelett, belgin waffle and fruit for $8!!! But the best part was that happy hour started @ NOON 2 for 1 drinks in a 24-32 oz cup. So two delicious breakfast & 4 awesome drinks came up to $34 you can't beat that price

My wife and I stopped here for some appetizers and drinks one afternoon while staying in South Beach for a couple of days before leaving on a cruise. Other reviews talk about the pricey drinks, and it's true that $22 for a mojito is alot, but if it's buy one get one free (which was the case when we were there), then they're really only $11 each :) The location on Ocean Drive is excellent, as is the outdoor atmosphere and view while you eat. Food was decent as well.

Our family of 4 (2 teens) chose this restaurant for its happy hour (until 7) dinner menu. We thought we'd be getting a reasonable priced meal. The mistake we made was getting Margaritas at their "2 for 1" special price, which seemed great until they were served - each one was a full foot in diameter and could hold about 2 quarts!! They also seemed very weak - I doubt they had much tequila or it was very watered down. The girls' drinks (Iced tea and lemonade) were normal sized and free refills were offered. The meals were fine, nothing to write home about. Service slowed waaay down once the meals were on the table, though. The big shocker came when the bill was finally delivered - the Jumbo drinks were $40!! (for the 2 of them), and the other drinks were expensive also. Big warning - make sure you tell them you want normal size drinks, or just get beer or wine!! Our 'inexpensive' dinner ended up costing over $120. We were NOT happy with our server, who never mentioned the birdbath-sized drinks (and their pricetag to match). We also were unhappy with the 15% service charge, but that seemed to be the norm in SoBe.

We wanted a quick meal as it was late. The children wanted food not on the menu. They cooked it for them. The waitress very efficient and pleasant and food served promptly. Food was average at oxen drive prices.
