The staff was always wonderful, the food delivered quickly and efficiently (whether you stayed pool side or ate at a table) and the food was excellent. The pulled pork sandwich and the bahn mi (ahi) were especially wonderful! Great bartenders!

We came here several times for shave ice and cold beverages while swimming in the pool. The lines were long, but the service was efficient and focused. The decor was very cute, and our kids loved ordering on their own.
