The restaurant has excellent Mexican Food. It is on the Bay Side of the beach near Louie's Backyard. We always try to eat here when we are at the beach.

We were visiting family here. Our first choice was packed, so we came here instead, because we could get in right away after flying all day to get to SPI. The wait staff was slow, although friendly. The food was mediocre at best. The price,...More

We love this place. It offers great Mexican food without the normal crowded atmosphere of the more popular bars or restaurants along they bay to watch the sunset. Staff is very friendly and the Marguareta's are good.

For such a wonderful location for view of the sunset and fireworks from your table, the service and food was very disappointing. Would have given a one star rating, but the location doubled its rating. The food was served incomplete, with insufficient tableware, plates and...More
