Surprisingly very few items were grilled. The food was good, but nothing to right home about. I believe this restaurant has the potential to be very good with expansion to the menu. Gluten free options would be nice.

This restaurant has great potential, the location is awesome. The menu is small, but I'd rather have that than a novel sized menu and frozen food. The burger was great. Would love to come back after more changes are made!

Don't even think of going here. Water glass had lipstick on it. Margarita's had no flavor and definitely no tequila. Only ordered an app and then left because experience was so bad. Do not get crab dip, horrible without taste and served with packaged stale...More
