I saw on another review that they had Jalapeno Mac & Cheese. This was amazing! my guest had the Blackened Mahi Salad and he said it was very good as well. I would recommend sharing the Jalapeno Mac & Cheese unless you have a hardy apatite. The restaurant in Tustin was very clean and if it wasn't so hot, we would have sat outside.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on July 30, 2017

Great food and our server was attentive. However, there is something to be said about management. I have never left a bad review on any restaurant until now. There were a group of young men in their early 20s'. Obviously drunk and extremely loud and rowdy. Their waiter was a friend of their's and was actually partaking in the drinking. He would lean over into the booth and drink from one of his friend's laps. That waiter was continuing to serve alcohol despite his friends' obvious inebriation. The manager and other wait staff seemingly continued to encourage this behavior. Never told them to tone it down. It was obvious they were all friends. Foul inappropriate language was being used. A couple walked out who were seated next to them. I had my young daughter with me and it was just an uncomfortable rowdy behavior. The manager should have thrown those diners out. They drunk and were being a public nuisance. Absolutely unacceptable.

Great option for meeting up with friends. Our server was very attentive and kept checking on as we stayed for awhile visiting and catching up. The food options were delicious with a wide variety of options. I also commend this restaurant on having gluten free options which were not just available, but also tasted great!

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate his birthday, and not only did the server bring ice cream, but also a birthday shot. It was great! The food was rich, delicious, and filling. Sharing meals is not a bad idea. I recommend the Not Your Mom's Deviled Eggs appetizer. Our server was lovely and made sure we were taken care of without coming by the table too often. The only surprise is I thought this place would have more draft beer options, but I was happy to see they have their own craft beer. Overall, we had a wonderful experience (perfect for a birthday) and would return again!

We had the spicy chicken wings and french fries. We then decided to order the nachos. To keep it on the lighter side we got the sour cream on the side. We both had a couple of cocktails . We'll be back.
