    Pulled pork tacos are tasty. Homemade pumpkin spice hot sauce was a surprise hit. Would order beans and rice without weird cheese sauce, but otherwise pleased with the food.

    Mmmmm, Sunday Brunch. You get a bloody mary or screwdriver, bottomless mimosas, a whole bunch of breakfast buffet options, and one of the menu entrees as well. Yummers! Be sure to try the butter beans

    Fun atmosphere - all kinds of pirate/nautical kitsch. Large bar with two aquariums. Nice outdoor seating, too. Good prices. The Cuban pork is delicious.

    Service sucks. Yuca is tasty but the banana guava ketchup is missing the bananas&guava. Had to ask for utensils for our salad. Why do I need to go to the bar to get h2o? Because our server was M.I.A.

    Fun place, but dirty bathrooms! Employees should not drink while working and bartenders need to work faster and be more attentive. Don't eat while you work!

    Skip the calamari...it's over cooked. Skip the jerk chicken sandwich...I'm not even sure what that was. Stick to the cuban sandwich if you have to go here. The waitstaff have room for improvement.
