I had a small wedding celebration party here and it was really nice. They've built some really nice scenery around the restaurant which is very pleasant to look at. I ate the Sunday brunch meal which provided a lot of variety and good taste.

Great happy Hour specials and food items! If you are into micro beers you will love their brews; Staff and happy hour specials. A great stop after kayaking. Got to do it!

Restaurant staff offered prompt seating for a group of 7 without appointment. Service was good and the food was delicious and portions good. Satisfied and would return next time in San Diego.

Would definitely eat here again when we return to La... More
