The service was not good and it was not good for special events. Only go if you want to be treated poorly, with attitude and if you want to go for drinks.

I wanted good southern barbecue, and we got it here. The simple dining room is separate from the lounge and live music, so you can have conversation. What is excellent is the food. The best ribs ever. Our friends loved the brisket and the meat pie. The parmesan crusted mash was yummy. The wine selection was good too. We will be back. Service was fast and friendly, but not rushed. We had a great time.

The waiter stuck us in a room and didn't check on us for 30 minutes at a time. Completely threw his restaurant under the bus and blamed "them" anytime something went wrong -- food was forgotten, drinks were missing, orders incorrect, etc.

Food was not worth the price. The best part was the ambiance.

The view from the rooftop is just amazing. You have a 360-degree view on Laguna, including the ocean and the mountains. The ribs are incredible, perfectly soft and tasty. Great spot!!

The Roof Top is always fun. Get there before sunset; first come, first serve, no reservations for the roof top dining.
Food is generally very good. Surprisingly great ribs & wings too.
Happy Hour on Monday is great - it goes to closing, so you can get a decent wine for around $3.25 a glass.
Check your bill carefully if you have several people dining with you. Somehow, phantom charges can appear on the bill; extra wine, extra drinks, food surcharges, etc.

We had a great time celebrating St. Patrick’s Day there! We booked a table ahead of time, but had to change the number of guests in our party in the last minute, but were graciously accommodated at a table right by the dance floor :-) Our server was amazing, friendly, attentive and very efficient! Loved the place! They even offered a free shuttle to and from our hotel .

We went hungry and that was a good thing. The "All-in" was enough to feed all three of us. The ribs were the best I have had in a while. They were fall off the bone good. The drink list was pretty good they seemed to have a lot of craft beers, if you are in to that. We plan to go back for lunch, since it looks like they have a pretty good selection.

Great view! Caution; if you choose to go up to the roof to enjoy the sunset, the restaurants and Open Table will treat it as not honoring your reservation. The service is fantastic, fast and friendly, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Great cocktails!

Your mileage may vary. They are pretty selective with seating (typical in Laguna) so experience will depend where you sit. This time we were in the side room with super-sized TVs so the ambiance was sports bar. Food is always good there though.

Had so much fun with my girlfriend and I here. Their cocktails were perfect in flavor and creativity. The food was tasty comfort food and good seafood options. The view of Laguna Beach was awesome, and the staff was great. They offered us blankets due to it being windy and checked on us regularly, but not too much to be annoying. Everything was perfect. Will def go there again for another Sunday Fun Day out with friends.

Took my wife for Valentines last minute. Thank goodness for Open Table! Sat inside where the band plays. Filet, Lobster, Gumbo, Salad and WINE. Enjoyed a romantic glass of wine on the rooftop view of Laguna Main Beach. After dinner the band came out and we didn't even have to move. Great management. We will go back. Don

Good bar scene but WAY too loud for dinner. Thanlfully they had a side room where we could have a conversation. The music was still intrusive. If they did acoustic music I'd consider going back for a drink.

It was a great time for our first time.
We were both celebrating our birthdays.
The reggae band and the live band were both fantastic.
We both felt very safe there dancing !
Lots of security all around us ! Love that!
Staff were very friendly and we even made some friends. Next time we would like to eat on the deck but it was too cold that night but we definitely will come back in the summer!

We had a great time! Arrived for a 630pm dinner reservation and enjoyed the reggae band that was performing. I had the stuffed avocado, very nice. My husband had the jambalaya, it was very tasty. My brother had the full rack of ribs and said it was delicious. We then stayed on for the evening performer, and R&B band, again very good. We drank and danced and really enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be back!
