Food was exceptionally good. The ribs were not salty and very tasty. The calimari and shrimp appetizers were also very good

This was our 3rd time here. The first 2 were great. This time not so much. Our a special kabob medium rare. It came out well. After hunting down our server, they remade the meal. It took over 15 minutes. The rest of our party was done eating. They offered free dessert for waiting. Then the dessert took 15 minutes. We barely saw our server the entire time. I don’t know if we will be back. We were pretty unhappy with the overall experience.

Food took FOREVER. We were there over an hour and forty five minutes and the restaurant wasn't crowded. Server kept forgetting things and rarely checked in with our table to refill drinks. Restaurant has a bad smell like dirty carpet.

Really concerned about the indoor seating. The carpets are old it has become too congested. The smell inside was unbearable and thats why I requested for a table outside. The staff was helpful and arrange a table outside for 10. But I would want them to fix what is going on inside with cleanliness and the atmosphere. I will think a 100 times before planning to eat at this place during winters.

Overall positive is the service and the amazing food.

Our server forgot to give us cutlery until we asked him, and he also gave us 6 waters and 5 straws for 7 people. Furthermore, one person in our party ordered a steak medium rare, but was served a well-done steak. Another person also ordered a lighter portion pasta, but was served and charged for a full portion of pasta. The service and attentiveness could have been better, but other than these, the food was decent and the environment was good.

The coconut shrimp were so flat and burnt that you could not taste the shrimp and for $16.99, not worth it. The tequila salmon was OK, had better. Too expensive for the quality of food. The waitress was very attentive and really nice.

We arrived there and was seated. Not one person came to our table for over 30 minutes when we went and found them. After taking our order the waiter came back with our appetizers but no silverware or plates for anyone. We had to go find him again and ask for that. Then he came back to our table with our drinks and forgot 2 of our drinks. When we finally got our food we asked for one meal be prepared go to...didn't happen. And he wanted to charge us for a drink that's included I the kids meal. We spoke to the manager on duty and he seems very nonchalant about us explaining our experience. He did comp our drinks but for that horrible service I shouldn't have had to pay for anything. If you're planning to go here DO NOT! Go anywhere other than here. Food is just ok and the service is poor at best. If I could I'd give them 0 or even negative stars.

Attacked by flies the entire time of dining outside. Spent over half the time waving flies away from my food and on my legs. I’m sure there are tiki torches that could be used to reduce the amount of flies.

Other than that the service was great. I ordered their new mango salmon and that was was a huge disappointment for $17.99

We made reservations for 630pm got seated at 655pm. Once seated our waitress Amanda came over took our drink order , returned to the table without the coffee. She took our order for appetizers n 20mins later a different waiter brought it out. She returned to take our order and left she came over and started that they had run out of ribs n asked my husband what he wanted without giving a menu to decide. Once he reordered which was 22 mins later she returned and told my mother they ran out of Tilapia n needed a new order. This is when I stop a different waiter to take her order. So it's now 8pm and we just got our entrees my mother asked for bread with her pasta which Amanda says that's gonna cost ya. We agree to the charge AMD we do t get the bread until we have finished our meals. Asked to talk to managment and NO ONE stopped by . Very dissatisfied and disappointed in this experience. We finally left . Food was great but customer service was Horrific. I spent 75.00 and felt like I had to ask for everything and not once offered a discount. Unhappy customers .

Seemed like we were being up-sold the whole time we were ordering. Husband ordered a happy hour drink and the wrong drink came (non-happy hour drink) even after the waitress came back to confirm his drink order. Tried to order happy hour half-price apps, but was told the menu had changed so what I wanted wasn’t available as advertised, but couldn’t get an explanation of what was actually available (jerk chicken wings). Kids menu said kids meals came with fruit and we never received it. Drinks were yummy and the food was good. Service could have been better though.

The meal was good, food was fresh, I had the shrimp mahi bowl with lemon grass sauce, i needed more sauce, but my husband really enjoyed his steak oscar, my friends and family all agreed everything was good just need more seasoning. Drinks were excellent, service was excellent.

We went on Mother's Day so was very crowded - but with our reservation were seating right on time. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing and made good suggestions. The food was served hot and nicely presented and was very tasty. The portions were larger than expected so apps are very shareable. Even with the crowds waiting to be seated - did not feel rushed. Well done!

The free appetizer requires you to sign up via texting and wait for the email. I received the email, but was then told another email has to come for the free appetizer. The appetizers were 50% off as explained by Mark (Manager) The food was very good with decent portions. We were up visiting my father and sister from Chicago.
