    Love the tex mex egg rolls and I always bring the bread to eat as a snack later. My husband loves the tuna. Service is usually good as we are frequent visitors. Never had a bad dish. Expect a wait.

    Great seafood, good cocktails, but be prepared to wait. No reservations and this place is super busy, even on weekdays.

    Mahi was great in fish tacos, but tortilla taco was so dry it kept falling apart! Had to eat them with a fork, yuck! and my husband's scallops were mushy.

    Hostess was terrible. Lost our check-in then wouldn't seat us. After complaining and asking for manager, hostess wouldn't get it but stood there folding silverware. Poor,poor service.

    Great atmosphere. Tremendous view if you sit outside. But probably the worst surf n' turf I've had in my life. Terrible.

    A local favorite, this oceanfront restaurant is instantly inviting with a covered deck, warm wood tones and terra cotta color scheme. And, the menu - wow.

    Great crab dip. Looked like there were a lot of flies outside. Kind of annoying that people were in and out from the balcony during dinner.
