Most our food was pretty good. But I was really disappointed that my pork chop dinner did not come as advertised with creamy polenta. That was the main reason I ordered it. Our main issue of the night was the service! It was awful!! Our waitress barely looked at us or spoke to us. We felt like we were intruding... More

I've been here a few times and have enjoyed quite a few things on the menu. The place doesn't stand out and quite frankly it'd be easy to walk right past unless you know it's there. I've never seen it super crowded but that's not due to bad service or food. I recommend this little spot especially if you happen... More

My mom and I stopped here for an early dinner on a Sunday. We had such a good time. The employees were so engaging and really made our visit fun. The food was good, especially the sweet potato fries. They had football games on the TV's, which made me happy too. I definitely recommend stopping here.

Great little place downstairs on the main street ( Orange Ave ). Open air which is nice for people watching. Interesting fare for a bar setting. The beef rib slider app was terrific. The rest of our ( 4 ) orders were very nice and our server was pleasant and efficient.

We stopped in for lunch and a couple of adult beverages while on Coronado Island. Very good for lunch. Chloe was our server and she was great.

Nice spot for a casual tavern type meal of course. Set below the main street it was a good spot to unwind with friendly bar staff there.

After walking on Coronado beach, we stopped by for a burger. The bacon and pepper burger with white cheddar was excellent and the fries were worth the calories! The service was good and I would highly recommend the spot.
