Foursquare Tips

  • Ahi tartare was excellent with a sweet and spicy twist. My bf said the avocado burger was the best he's had in a long long time! :)
  • Ask for Ozzy when you go. He was a courteous, entertaining staff member.
  • Order the sweet potato fries with the curry ketchup dip to complement your burger.
  • Ahi poke is very good
  • Try the happy hour! Great food and an excellent introduction to their menu. Love their hot wings.
  • Happy Hour FTW! Best value and amazing food too.
  • Happy Hour is a must do
  • Whatever you do, stay away from the tropical thunder drink. Pineapple and jalapeo infused vodka.... A little too unbearable. But everything else was yummy!
  • I didn't love the ahi tartare- way too much mango and tomatoes, one barely tasted the tuna. Go for something else.
  • Order ANYTHING - it's all good.
  • Get the filet. It's amazing. Also do the cobbler for dinner
  • Check out the "bubble wall" in the back room
  • Great food and service.if dining room is full, snag a table in the bar... same great menu and service.
  • The best restaurant in the area. Try their best salad!
  • The scallops are amazing. I pretty much order them every time I go. They also have a really nice wine selection.
  • Great for brunch.
  • Chicken Gordon blue! Awesome.
  • It's nice to be somewhere where the Televisions are turned off.
  • The banana bread they put on the table was excellent!
  • Good service, good wine list and the vodka pasta is legit!
