All was very good. Mussels in Peanut Sauce is a real treat. The Calamari although a little sweet for my taste was also a winner. The craft beers especially the milk stout (the name escapes me) was a knockout.

We could have easily split the skillet breakfast items - they are the best value in the Encinitas area! The wait staff was very friendly and the food comes out in just a few minutes. There is a full bar and great happy hours too!

Yes, they do! During our visit, a friend with us inquired about gluten-free items. My apologies, but I do not recall what specific menu items were gluten-free.
