Decent food. And good to sit outside. We ordered through the take out window and ate at outdoor table. Very nice. Nice sunny day. Fried calamari was quite good. The grilled rock fish sandwich was good too.

had the mahi mahi fish taco special. Fairly priced, nothing special about the food. Wait staff seemed confused and a bit overwhelmed at even a slow lunch rush. Sat by the take out counter and saw several orders that were incorrect.
