“Great View...Food is Okay”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

We stopped into Capitola for lunch on our way down the coast, and we chose this little bar. The seating was fantastic. We were on a deck looking out at the beach and the beautiful multi-colored beach cottages. The service was also excellent with an extremely friendly staff. The food, however, was average. I know not to expect much with bar food, but the french fries were so overcooked that they looked greasy but were in fact crunchy where they stuck in your teeth. The hamburger was good, and the fish that came with the chips was fine, but I would stick to having a few drinks here on the porch. For that, the place is great.

“Deafening music but fun otherwise.”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

We went for the live music, which was pretty good, but amped up to the extent that we regretted we had not brought earplugs. We're not sissies when it comes to listening to rock, but there's no reason to break ear drums in such a small venue.

“Needs a little attention.”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

Hate to give this place a poor rating because the staff is so sweet and food wasn't bad but the place needs some attention. We ate outside on the patio and there was bird poop everywhere. I understand that happens when there are sea gulls everywhere but at least disinfect the table before you seat you customer and keep the patio swept, neat and clean. It had an outdated, run down look. The bathroom was disgusting. Filthy dirty. I wondered if the cleanliness of the kitchen was consistent with everything else I had seen. One cool attraction was the big gull named Fred that perched nearby on the roof overlooking the patio and his job was to run off any other birds that may come to beg or steal your food :0). It was trained by one of the waiters. Cool.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Staff is always top notch. Weekend evenings they have terrific bands. It's nice to eat outside with a great view of the beach and ocean. Have gone there for many years and always have a great time!

“Great Service, food not so good”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We have eaten here 3 times and it has always been pretty good but today all three of us were disappointed. Fried shrimp was rubbery and tasted old, fish and chips were just bad and chicken sandwich was just alright.
The waitress was very nice and took great care of us!
