    Great diversity of options in quesadillas, tacos, and burritos. Try the fried avocado in a taco or the sweet potato in a quesadilla.

    If the deck is packed in the summer, 2 Ceres turns into Poco's as well and it's seat yourself.

    Walked up with 9 people @ 8pm and were seated right away [Monday night]. Drinks & food orders arrived promptly. Lobster chowder & taco sampler were yummy... as well as everyone else's orders.

    It's not summer until you've had their sangria on the deck. I do miss the old deck they had right on the water though.

    I would suggest trying the red snapper tacos, they're not fried like most fish tacos. Also 25 percent off your bill Wednesday through Friday this month

    BAD BAD attitude. This place is not Tourists Friendly. They only accept American Issued ID's and refused our business until we spoke to the manager and she accepted our international driving license.

    Their food suffers when they are busy. Best to go at a slower time of day if you really want to enjoy the deck views, otherwise your view is mainly of people waiting & harried waitstaff.

    The upper and lower decks are pretty awesome for the views. Sangria is expensive at 7 bucks, but it's a large glass!
