Kind of touristy. I didn’t like the Lobster tacos and my husband didn’t care for his margaritas. It was overpriced as well.

The waitress was great, when we had her attention. I have a feeling she was working multiple tables- like too many (both inside and outside). She was very honest when we asked about various food choices and in the end, all three of us were happy with our selections!

Chain all the way.. wasn’t aware of this before we booked a table. Place was basically deserted which is never a good sign. Live and learn

Service was extremely slow and it took 45min to receive our appetizer and it came with the main food. 1 dish of the 3 was wrong.

Fun atmosphere and our waitress, Haley, was attentive. However, the food was not enjoyable. Rubbery and greasy shrimp and Lobster tails. Tortillas were dry and hard.
