The food was exceptional. And the service was above and beyond, including keeping the propane heaters going, as it was chilly

Service was very slow but we weren’t in a hurry. The fish tacos were a little too fishy for my liking. Not something I’d go back for.

It was the first time I visited this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is very good. Unfortunately the heaters did not keep you very warm on the deck and they shut them off much before we were ready to leave. They told us it was on a timer and then there was some type of electrical issue. They had last call on the kitchen and bar at 8:30 and they turned the lights off at 9 PM!!! They did tell us they were close and we could stay but I didn't expect no heat or lights at 9 PM.
The manager heard we were not happy and gave us her card for dessert the next time were were in but....
I would recommend this restaurant on a weekend in the summer when it's warm and there is natural light.

The restaurant was a bit understaffed. Unfortunately, Covid is affiliated with this. Food was ok but we had to ask several times for items. We would give them another chance.

Been here a few times and love it. This was a first time for Brunch which was amazing. Quality of food is excellent, farm to table mostly. Service is always friendly. They were busy as it was Valentine's day. So food was a little slow to come out. The bought us a round of drinks due to the wait. Always a good way to win me over!

We arrived about 20 mins early for our reservation, and was told in a less than friendly manner to come back at our reservation time. We did and were promptly seated. While our waiter wasn't the friendliest, the woman helping him was awesome-super sweet and helpful. The food was very good but portions super small. $12 for two street tacos, no sides made for a very light meal. The house margarita tasted fresh and was delicious.
