Had the Runaway Fish Tacos and Shrimp Tacos, Baja Rolls (appetizer)...I think they were the best fish tacos i have ever had and dining at sunset was a real treat. Our server, Izzy, was the best . . . friendly, very attentive and knowledgable!

Had a light lunch while watching boats being launched and unlaunched. Having the pool area and outside seating was unusual but very cool. Food was excellent and service was great.

Always a great spot when in town for good food, cold beer and great service. We love the pool out back because it always keeps the kids occupied while we're enjoying an adult beverage and waiting on our food.

Stopped here for a quick cocktail before a catamaran ride. Drinks were cold and refreshing, but the service was a bit lacking and we didn't get the feeling that they wanted us to be there. Not the friendliest bunch! But drinks were good!
