One of my favorite restaurants in Arroyo Grande! The food is very good, the drinks even better! Roosters roam and live in the creek behind the restaurant. Highly recommend a visit.

Excellent menu options. it's busy and easy to see why. The food is great. The pizza is perfectly cooked in a pizza oven.The entree portions are generous. It's a noisy, casual place. Reservations a good idea.

I'd let the manager or chef at the restaurant know how much you liked their food and they might share with you. Best,

I would say nice casual. It can get busy especially on weekend, but honestly I would just call and see what their reservation policy is. Can't hurt.
