We stopped in for happy hour and tasted the most delicious, fresh red wine Sangria. They offered a white Sangria as well. The Duck Tostadas are delicious. Be careful, the salsa that was offered with the chips was very HOT! Not for everyone, so we ordered Queso dip as well. The server was pretty slow to notice that we had been seated, so one person in our party had to go to the bar and get service after we waited about 10 minutes. It was not crowded, so I'm not sure what the problem was with this. But, she brought the check in a timely manner :) All in all, it was a good visit to a place that is always highly recommended. We had a table with a river view and that was nice.

Although I have eaten here many times and ordered something different each time, I am still trying to find good food and drinks. They have "specialty" drinks one of which my daughter sent back it was so bad. Their drinks have great sounding names, but not much else.

And the food is pretty average as well.

That said, I will continue to go here as I LOVE watching the activity on the river from the open-air windows. Even in the winter, it is so peaceful just watching the river flow. Maybe I will eventually find something good to eat.

Great relaxing location next to the river. Ask for a table near the windows, but you may have to wait or go early to snag. It is fun to watch people on the river.
For starters we had the Duck Tostadas- smokey flavor on the duck was good - tostada base a bit overdone-but still good. Pass on the nachos - they were uneventful, but everything else we had was very tasty including the Carne Asadsa Tacos (yum) and the Green Chile. We also tried the Baha Fish Tacos - the slaw on top was really good as well. Excellent, friendly, well informed wait staff. We would definitely go back.

Nice place for lunch or dinner. We have eaten here several times and the food is always good.
The salads are all nice and the hamburgers are tasty. Can't go wrong eating here.

The food was great and the service could not have been better. It was not overly crowded and was easy to find. After dinner, we took a leisurely stroll along the river walk.
