Love the views here at brunch! This is another spot I will always try to eat/drink at when I visit Catalina. The service is always good and the food/drinks are tasty. Great date spot.

While the menu at dinner is somewhat limited, the food is well prepared and presented. The beverage choices are varied and fun and the wine list is adequate. I highly recommend the pork chop. Perfectly prepared and accompanied by a perfect sauce.

like others before me, ask the restaurant - most restaurants do, with varying corkage costs.
