I love this place! We sat at the bar which is a giant aquarium. I loved sitting there watching the fish. The food was delicious and they had a lot of different beers in their cooler. Our server was really cool, plus we got to talk to the owners of the place. Brian is a really cool guy and his mom (cant think of her name) is adorable and really sweet. I plan on going back many times.

We went for dinner on a Tuesday night. You seat yourself and we sat on the outdoor patio. It is completely secluded from the roads and is surrounded by 4 concrete walls. They did a really wonderful job remodeling the place from what it used to look like. They took out a lot of walls and put in a really neat fish tank for the bar. It was totally unrecognizable. They place was not at all busy! It did take a while to get our appetizers and food but we were socializing so we didn't really care. They were out of pineapple juice and regular red bull. In a town with 50 different places to go buy more, I was surprised that nobody in management gave authorization to go do so. Someone could have made a quick trip to handy foods to go buy more until the regular delivery came in. When 1/2 the drinks on the menu include redbull or pineapple juice it was a little disappointing. A Mai Tai just dont taste the same without the pineapple juice. Hubby was surprised the orange red bull was good with vodka. Drink prices were reasonable. Our waitress was nice. We ordered the jumbo shrimp cocktail. You only get 5 and they aren't jumbo at all. Also ordered the stuffed mushrooms. They were very good and a nice size. We also ordered the southwest wrap, A'lure burger, kabob and the salmon. All were very tasty. Fodd prices were average to the area. We would definitely go back.

A group of us just stopped by again last weekend for drinks. If the weather cooperates, you MUST check out the patio! Brian makes outstanding Moscow Mules ;-)

1st time here, had lunch. No one was there when we walked in. Not even staff, walked around, called out, walked around some more, finally the guy (the owner we think) came out of the basement. Wasn't very sociable. But the food we ordered was very good! Interesting appetizers, not just the same fried stuff everyone serves. Nice presentation too. I'd eat here again, maybe for dinner, out on the patio, nice atmosphere.
