8 TV's on the walls. Great menu with lots of options. Alex the man at the bar speaks very good English and very attentive. We had the coconut shrimp served with orange marmalade. Huge platter. Glad we split. Will be back

Alex is outstanding. If you want a good conversation, good service and of course a good beer or margarita, Alex is the man. :)
