We've visited this location many times before when it was many different restaurants....all were mediocre, so we weren't expecting much.

The burgers were great. The garlic fries were epic. The kickin' ketchup was a nice surprise.

The atmosphere is a bar, but there is a cozy little nook to keep wandering kids busy, as many parents don't actually make their kids sit at restaurants anymore.

The service was good. It was not lacking and we didn't have that annoying server who asks you how you are with every single bite. Brian was great: mellow, attentive, and professional.

Was VERY grateful for the effort of our server to snag us a pizza and couple salads as we came in about the time the kitchen stopped serving main menu items. She made our night! We were starving and even though it was only 9pm, many places were closing or closed. Food wasn't thrown together like it might be if kitchen staff/servers didn't care with it being later in the night and shutting down the kitchen. The salads were fresh & pizza was awesome! A couple cocktails, and we were on our way. Would recommend to anyone and would love to stop back in to enjoy their outdoor patio space.

Nice friendly sports bar and local beach hangout in Dana Point. Burgers and tacos with draught beer are tasty. Service is usually slow and unattentive but OK if you are there to watch a basketball, football, baseball or hockey game.

We went because the reviews were good. It is a bar and a little one at that. The menu online was different from the current menu. Waiter said it had just changed. I had salad and others had pizza. It was an ok meal. We moved outside because it was so load inside.
