This place doesn't need my review. We have never been for lunch, only breakfast. Casual atmosphere, good food, good service. Expect to wait! Reminds me of being in the Carribbean or Key West.

It will be a second location that will be open year round. The outdoor cafe will only be open in the summer. This will be a great addition to our year restaurants!
