Halibut tacos, amazing!!!!!! So far in my life, fish tacos have only achieved an "aiight". Spinach dip is a 5/10. If you are an avid spinach dip orderer, this score is high enough for you to order and be satisfied. It was a little thin,...More

We've visited this location before. This visit was a bit disappointing. The service was just "ok" as our server was not overly interested in his customers. Our meal was also "ok" but nothing special. Given the pricing, you'll definitely find better value elsewhere.

Great menu, beautiful views, nice lounging area outside the dining room with couches and gas fire pits.
