We had a good family meal here. I chose the tacos from the lite menu. It is nice the menu tells you calorie count on most items, including dessert! The 1000-2000 calorie dessert made me not want to have it! Entrees from 10-25$ each. Kids...More

Had late night drinks with friends and family on the roof-top bar. Great views and good drinks. Only issue was the roof closed at midnight.
