We had a party of 10 on a Friday night. All of our food was delicious from the fajitas to the kids meals. Our server was very attentive as well as the other staff.

Nice and quiet and very fast service. Didn’t even get done doctoring my tea and my dinner was being served. Will definitely be back while I’m here.

20 minute wait for a table that was in the middle of the floor. I was bumped by every patron and server as they went by my table. Food was expensive, overpriced and lacked flavor. The kids liked the surf and turf burrito. It had...More
