Lovely service as always. Been here 4 times and always had very nice meal. Shrimp fajitas are good and steak fajitas too. Large range of drinks and cocktails. Will go back again and have the guacamole as starter, just so yummy!

Went there for lunch on SAT and had a great meal and the waiter was the best, I only wished they had a luncheon menu on SAT.

We had a nice lunch here. Nice guacamole and great beef burritos all,washed down with a pleasant sangria. Served well and a little pricey but nice.

Flat different beer x 2, shrimp and salad was the worst I EVER had; as it was a pile of dry leaves, with some shrimp on top with an unripen mango. Bartender did her best, while the rest of the staff just stood around. Portsmouth...More

This is not the same Agave as in Newburyport, not even close! This was very disappointing. The food is mediocre at best, the waitstaff is overworked, resulting in terrible service, even the beer was not good as they seemed to be having difficulty with their...More

The food here is excellent, as are the margaritas, but the seating the cramped and the noise level is loud. The food portions are substantial so be careful when you order. The classic nachos can feed a table of 4! They make a good fish...More
