    This place is okay. The food was good, ordered a skinny margarita not so great and the service was less than stellar.

    Excellent food. Try the fish burrito, mahi mahi! The servers are a little bit rude but other than that, the place is great. In some spots of the restaurant, you can get a view of the ocean.
