    Met on old friend to catch up we sat outside upstairs (they need some sort of fans Hot as Hell unless the wind stirs… I still hate the order system I mean I’m sure the waitstaff can take and order if there is more than one person paying the system won’t recognize the second tab unless if the 1st person closes their tab… I doubt I’ll go back … such a shame for such a cool place..

    The apps were really good. The food was good overall but side items (corn) could have been served hotter. We did not love the pineapple upside down cake (cake tasted like biscuick) but the chocolate coconut ice cream cake was really good. Loved the rooftop outdoor dining vibe.

    The shrimp tacos and calamari were okay. The grilled pineapple smelled wonderful. Service was excellent. The food wasn't anything to write home about but it was okay. I probably would only go back because the service was top notch.

    Pina Colada - Best! Food and service great! I have read reviews about the online ordering system taking the place of service but that was not my experience. We were checked on often, asked if we needed water, etc. Kevin, the manager was very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening!

    The only negative was that a couple of guests did not have cell phones, one phone not charged up, so this made it difficult to do the scanning and ordering. Our 87 year old guest really needed a printed menu but none were available. The guests with no cell phones ended up being on the bill for those ordering for them, so it made paying a bit awkward. Glad the 20% gratuity was already added, but the extra tip choices at top and one labeled “no tip” confused everyone.

    The restaurant was not full and we had the worst service. The waitress was not attentive. She never brought extra napkins and we had to ask for refills. The cold drinks were warm. We ordered all at the same time as requested and my food did not come until everyone else was finished eating there and that was only because I asked about it. My order was incorrect. So I had to wait another 20 minutes for my food to be prepared correctly and everyone else in my party had to wait for me to finish my food. This was the worst birthday meal experience I’ve had. If gratuity wasn’t already included we would have definitely not left one. This is my first and last visit to this location.

    I wanted it to be good. Cute place, with friendly people. super cute drinks. Food was ok. Service was very bad. Just nonexistant. If you're going to take an automatic 20% and the service is just runners It doesn't feel like eating out. You don't really get any service- just people dropping off food. People need to be dedicated to coming back to their table and checking on people to see if they need anything.

    The live band was the highlight of the evening. Our server was attentive but it took forever for our drinks to come. Our appetizers were cold and cold calamari is disgusting. My husband ordered the pork sandwich and fries. Cold! Thankfully I ordered the salad so it was supposed to be cold. Was not a good experience. This is what you get when there is an automatic service fee tacked on to the bill. Won’t be my first option as a dining experience again.

    The food was good. I hate having to pick-up my phone to order because it gets dirty from food and takes my attention off the dining experience of convetsations with people and feels like work. The SERVICE CHARGE and TIP on a bill is confusing. I would order more food and drinks if I didn't see the cost. And are you asking for a double tip?

    Birthday dinner for my daughter. There were very few people there as it was a Tuesday. We had drinks out on the patio and then went upstairs for dining. Our waitress was very attentive and there was only one other family dining outside with us.

    They make you order on an app and the service was very slow though the food was good. Drinks from the bar came slow as was evident by the melted ice in the drinks. Also they add 20% to your tab regardless of service levels and when checking out on the app trick you into tipping. So I tipped well over 35% on the bill and didn’t realize I til after the payment processed.

    Terrible dining experience. They have an online ordering system and the wait staff can’t figure out which table to bring the food to. Then they hit you a 20% charge to order and pay online. Mediocre food. Terrible service. Ridiculously overpriced. Stay away.

    The food wasn’t that good. We ordered the nachos with pork and queso, the tuna tower, and the hot chicken sandwich. The nachos were good and the pork was tasty. The tuna tower was way too salty and the rice wasn’t cooked right. It was crunchy and completely hard in certain places. The chicken sandwich was over cooked and rubbery. The best thing was the drinks. We got one classic pina colada and one with strawberry. Would maybe go back for drinks but not food.

    We reserved an igloo and had a great time with how quiet it was outside on the patio, inside our private igloo. A little disappointed that they do not have igloos on the rooftop patio (we were at street level) as indicated when we made the reservation. The drinks were great, the food was good. Service model is very much our style—order on the app what you want in the next few minutes and a happy server brings it by. Don’t order your whole meal at once, the kitchen sends out everything you order at one time. If you want separate courses, order accordingly.

    My party of six was underwhelmed with their food choices. I and another of my party had the fish and chips. The fish had absolutely no flavor. I had also ordered the pineapple upside-down cake which were really two mini muffins, and I emphasize the mini, and a less than quarter cup scoop of ice cream, did not look like photo at all and two pieces of pineapple. Another in our our party had hot chicken sandwich. It was not cooked all the way. She took half home to finish cooking at home. Extremely disappointed. This was my second time here. There won't be a third.
