We had to wait a couple of hours to check into our hotel so it was nice to have a place to wait. We had the chicken wings & tried all the sauces & I had aloha blonde beer for the first time - nice.

Bar and kitchen staff so friendly and helpful prices very reasonable for food and drinks. The cave island theme inside is fun and quirky.

stayed in the hotel next door so ate here several times different times of day and night. Didn't matter what I ordered the food tasted good. The waitresses were very friendly. Prices were cheaper than most other places in the area. I would recommend.
