    Food was good but service was the worst we had on vacation. Had to ask for silverware and napkins. Had to get our drinks from the bar after they sat there for 10 minutes. Awful service ....

    Neat place to sit outside on the deck over the water. Great crowd, decent food and cold beer.

    Pretty spot with cheap eats but not worth the drive from downtown Austin. You can do better.

    Looking to indulge but not be too bad? Try the stuffed avocado as an appetizer with sides of diced tomato and lettuce. Delish!

    We split the Huli Huli Luau Platter and it was great. Good mix of a lot of great stuff: ribs, tacos, nachos, salad. The Mai Tai was great too. Also recommend the Tres Leches for dessert.

    If you like avacado you have to try the fried stuffed avocado, perfect mixture of healthy but savory. Great food, crappy bartenders.

    Wasn't at all impressed. Food made me sick. Dip was too spicy. Waiter had a lack luster personality at best. They add gratuity to your check without any warning. Don't waste your time.

    45 minute wait, don't go on a Sunday unless you really, really like this place. Also, not the restaurant's fault, but there were children running around everywhere, knocking stuff over. Stop it.
