Nothing terribly wrong with the place - it's just that nothing actually stood out. The price point and decor just didn't match the execution. The horseradish with the oysters was called 'atomic horseradish' - it lacked a punch and they even brought out another serving of it when we gave them the feedback (it tasted the same). It's tough to review places and just be honest - it was good. That's it. We won't be returning, because we wouldn't pay that much for 'good' - we pay that much for great! There are better places in the Valley - we're lucky!

Our first time here and we were pleasantly surprised. Cool atmosphere and great service. The food was outstanding. We had mussels in white wine, which came to the table piping hot. My husband had the ribs and it was a full rack. The chopped salad was fresh and delicious. Our water glasses where constantly filled and the waiter was extremely attentive. The owner came over (we had no idea it was a family owned restaurant) and chatted with us. Apparently there is music on Friday and Saturday night.

Loved the ambience and the live music was a welcome surprise. The service from the time we walked in the door until the time we departed was second to none. The menu had many fabulous options and the food was well prepared and tasty. We will certainly return.

Goodness, I really wanted to like it here. Especially after reading the majority if the reviews, i expected more. This place was the old location of the Sandbar. They have not done a great job in transforming this place into a fine dining establishment. And at the price point of the menu, I expected more of a fine dining experience. While i sat at my table, i looked out a window clear across the room to see a Checker O’Reilly sign. Not to mention the other large garage type windows (from the bar prior) which showed the old bar area closed off from before. Just tacky in my opinion. The staff was kind & we had no issues with service. The tray of oysters were good. The cocktail sauce was blah & the horseradish was not as “atomic” as it should be. Again, our opinion. But if you are used to places like, Mastros, Ocean 44, or say Buck n Rider... this just doesn’t even come close. Oh and for 6$ a shrimp, they shouldnt be cooked so long. Ours were over cooked unfortunately & had the consistency of sandpaper. We didn’t send anything back because its not our style. But hopefully this was just a bad batch? Quite frankly we left after the appetizers because we didn’t think it was going to get any better. I think if it weren’t for the lack of ambiance, we may have pushed through to try entrees. Onto Ocean Club down the street we went

Food was over priced and average not worth your time to go here. Couldn't even get a Tito's and tonic where the tonic wasn't flat. Alot of other places are way better for the same price or less. Not worth your time. Also kitchen closes and 9 on a Saturday and our reservation was at 8:30. Ridiculous

The bar seating is phenomenal, with staff that do an outstanding job of waiting on you as well as bar tending. The oysters were amazing and fresh. The ahi tuna entree was wonderful as well. The bartenders have a great flow with service. And the drinks were amazing ( we had the modern old fashioned and it exceeded expectations.) Needless to say we will be back for sure.

We had the Blue Point oysters and shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, both were very good. For entrees we had the salmon and ahi tuna. The salmon was good but the tuna was the star as had great flavors. Waiter was helpful and gave good recommendations. Loved the music, nice vibe. We will definitely return!
