I eat here every time I come to Lake Havasu. They have great food and a great view . The service is usually good unless you come on a busy holiday weekend, all the waiters and waitresses were stressed out and couldn't handle the busy crowd. They have an awesome tie dye margarita and the best shrimp ceviche!!

Not the shirt, but get the Tye Dye Margarita, it is both pretty and photogenic and tasty as well. Great for Instagram. Well that was $9.50 and we also tried the free chips and salsa and the appetizer sampler platter. The highlight of the sampler was the Bacon Wrapped cream cheese stuffed Jalapeno poppers, which were not hot at all.... More

4 stars. Good service, food, and atmosphere. We ordered the cheese crisp to start off with and it was pretty good. Basically an open face cheese quesadilla. Their guacamole is fantastic but wish they could make it without those nasty onions. For dinner we ordered the chicken fajitas and they were great was well. They add green, red, and yellow... More

The patio looks out upon the London Bridge so it's very scenic. We were warmly greeted and in addition to us being brought water immediately our dog was given a water bowl with ice in it too! Our server was so friendly and made our experience even better. The chips and salsa brought when we got there were addictive! The... More

We've been here countless times with friends and it never disappoints. Staff is always smiling and very helpful. Food is always wonderful (I especially love their Taco Salads with shredded chicken or beef) and their specials are always great. Food is fresh, hot & delicious.. They will take reservations for larger groups - I believe 6+. Whether you go for... More

We stopped in again at the Javelina Cantina. This time on a Sunday late afternoon. The wait staff is great. We wanted to sit and enjoy the view and have a cocktail or two and they didn't have any issues with us doing so whatsoever. They were very pleasant. We were asked occasionally if we were ready for another or... More

We stayed at Heat Hotel and this was just a walk across the parking lot. On a Friday night there were people waiting for tables. We waited about 15 minutes and was surprised when we were seated how many empty tables there were. That was not cool in my book. The food was decent and the service so-so. We didn't... More

We stopped in for drinks and queso. The huckleberry margarita was very tasty and refreshing. Didn't end up having queso but the chips and salsa were good.

I'm sure it wasn't typical but our experience was not good on the day we dined. The food was delicious but service painfully slow. Our server seemed to abandon us for long periods of time. well over 30 minutes to get our food while others around us who arrived after were eating. Once we had our food nobody came back... More
