I would describe this restaurant as busy, friendly, a little crowed and fun. We had a above average meal there. I guess it was the half lobster! I think the hustle and bustle atmosphere added to the foods flavor. lol. We had a good lunch and it was a fun stop for us to make.

Visited here with family. Busy, noisy and crowded. 5 stars if that’s what like. Typical menu, nothing special ex very nice Margaritas. Food was average for most of us. I’m going to look for a different Mexican place next visit.

We ate here twice in one week because what is not to like there? Friendly and efficient service, excellent food and very, very reasonable prices. Fish tacos delighted us each time we ate but I am sure other choices were good, too.

Stopped in for dinner while at the beach. Found this nice (across the street) seaside Mexican restaurant. Smelled great from the parking lot.

Nice selection of simple Mexican dishes. Seafood was good.

Excellent service.
