We stopped for lunch and enjoyed mahi tacos, burgers and specialty drinks. Service was good, prices reasonable and the mahi in particular- fabulous. Looks like it would be a good spot for dinner as well; seems like a locals spot.

Food was delicious, service was awesome and their pickle dip was on point. I had the fish and chips which was awesome. They gave my daughter crayons and a coloring book to keep her entertained. Good atmosphere.

We were a group of 10 ladies; ended up with 5 per table, as the restaurant is quite small. While we waited, we really enjoyed looking at all the interesting art (for sale) on the walls. We didn't have to wait long to be seated...More

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
