    The worst experience. Service was bad and they served me part of a latex glove with my meal. I don't think I will be back. The manager did apologize and did not charge us. That part was positive.

    Drinks were yummy but the food was just ok. Skip the queso dip, not worth it, it was really runny and had a yucky flavor.

    Tender pork enchilada was NOT tender at all. Chips & salsa took FOREVER to come out because they were "out". But other than that drinks and food were tasty!

    I love the calamari tacos and ask to sit at table 83 to look out on Main St and the Duke. (Not that Duke!) Don't be surprised by bad service. That's not why you're here.

    I understand it the us open and super busy, but there's no excuse for the level of service we received. 1 star and only because the food was good. Otherwise, zero. Go somewhere else this weekend.

    Bartenders and service suck. Seems like the place picked the most brain dead females from the beach . So sad. Best to eat or drink elsewhere.

    So far, service is ok and nothing more . Hope they step up their game because there is plenty of other restaurants just outside on main street.
