Great place for Happy Hour or pre-theater dining (several theaters within walking distance).
Homemade Butterscotch Pudding Awesome!!!
Service was disjointed (5:45 reservation) but main server was good. No utensils when food brought out. Special occasion listed on open table was not picked up by restaurant - decided to not make it an issue. Food and presentation was average.
My husband and I had dinner here before going to see a play at the civic theatre. I had the steak salad which was really good. My husband had the fish and chips (which I tasted!). The batter was a little too thick and overcooked for me, but the fish was tender and juicy. We’ve eaten here before and we’ll eat there again.
I'd suggest that your wait staff ALWAYS not "usually" note when the food contains nuts. The side dish of coleslaw had walnuts, which can send one of the diners at my table into anaphylactic shock. You know, when they stop breathing? The walnuts were not mentioned on the menu that we saw so I HIGHLY recommend you make this change to both menu and instruct the wait staff. We were fortunate that the walnut was found before it was consumed otherwise that really WOULD have ruined our night at the theatre. Otherwise the food was great and the wait staff attentive to the fact we had a show to get to.
Food was very good at the table but my ono taco was cold.
We were glad to dine at Spike's while we were celebrating our seasonal achievements. Thank you for accomodating the 12 of us!
We ate here before watching a show in the Civic Theatre. The staff was quick and friendly. There was a good variety of dishes and all of the things we ordered were delicious. I would definitely recommend this to someone who wanted a good quick meal in casual friendly place.
Great choice for pre-theater! Happy hour menu had good selections, and the ceviche was delicious! Generous portions!
Seafood Chile Relleno was okay. Loved the black beans though. The Swordfish Nachos were a hit as always. The Butterscotch pudding was delectable! I would get it again. As always, great service. =)
Great food and atmosphere. Got the swordfish fajitas, portion size was big and left full. Happy hour til 630
What an excellent place to have dinner before the show. The staff was great, I loved the happy hour selections like the oysters, and their fish tacos had great fish fillets in them instead of deep fried "fish sticks". We were a little earlier than the main dinner crowd, so we had a quiet booth and a really super waitress. We will definitely go back.
I liked that there is an option to have fish on the nachos other than the traditional protein option. The spicy seafood chowder was tasty. I was disappointed that they were our of the seafood chile relleno. And the Coronado crab roll was a little lackuster. Great service though.
Excellent food and good service. They didn't respond to my reservation made through Open Table where I mentioned it was a birthday. No one in the restaurant knew nor reacted, so booking through Open Table was a waste of time, I could have called directly and made my own arrangements. However food, service and ambiance was good.
Excellent fish and chips along with a good happy hour selection. Nice spot for pre-show drinks and noshing for downtown theatre events. Don't miss the salted butterscotch pudding - share with a friend and have zero regrets!
