We were sat immediately and multiple servers jumped in together to take care of us. I liked how everyone pitched in with refills and clearing of plates too- great teamwork! Food was amazing -beach burrito and blueberry... More

My son and I went here for breakfast recently. Neither one of us like our food. I have heard for years that this was a good place to go for breakfast. The food was bland and so was the service
