Malibu Grill has an excellent bar with tasty mixed drinks and a long wine list. The dinner salads are very good. The menu includes many solid choices at several price levels. The quality of the meal never disappoints.

I had the pesto wood fired pizza, it was delicious. However during my visit our waitress failed to put in our appetizer so never received it. I will give it another shot at some point.
