The saving grace of this place was that it was next to the dive site. Outdoors on Catalina was actually quite nice. The music was very good for a one-member band. The burgers were decent, but the bathrooms were lacking. They were porta-potties on steroids...More

Our family had a great time eating here over 4th of July weekend. On weekends, they sell generous portions of fish that you can grill yourself on their outdoor barbecue. Fresh and delicious with a local feel.
