I was in the area on a business trip and ended up eating here two nights in a row. Excellent service and delicious food. Good appetizer sampler platter, delicious shrimp tacos, friendly waitstaff, good beer. If I'm back in the area this will be my first stop.

The food here is excellent; the property is large and spacious; the staff were attentive and for a Sunday night - we felt as important as any guest onsite.

We dined on Karin's Salad, fried oysters and blackened scallops, and had the seasonal Creme Brûlée (Hot Cinnamon) and Reese's Chocolate Peanut-Butter Pie for... More

Stopped by Montero's today for a Sunday brunch with family. The Texas Dip was incredible, and the classic burger was very good. We have never had a bad meal here, and we let the owner know it as he made the rounds.
