We went to the patio to have some cocktails and enjoy the view. We were greeted by a pleasant waitress and she advised us of her favorites which are now our favorites! It was a great place to relax and people watch.

The food was good. The atmosphere was nice. Our waitress was sweet and fast. They sat us under an air conditioner duct that kept dripping ice water down my back.

Kids menu is good. Adult menu is so-so. Outdoor seating area is a must (inside is dated). Short walk from hotels. Expect to wait.
