Multiple locals and visitors recommended this place so we tried it our on our way to the airport for departure. The atmosphere is very casual, sports-bar with loud music and lots of TVs. We ordered 3 appetizers for dinner and couldn't finish the huge portion of nachos. Everything was tasty in a typical bar food sort of way. Our server was nice but we didn't see her much. It seemed she had a huge section to wait on making service a bit slow.

Went here for any early dinner, excited to eat at "the most farthest west sports bar in the US", expecting standard sports' bar food. We were sadly disappointed, the noise and music level steadily increased as we sat there during happy hour, and the service was poor, very slow and our server didn't seem too excited to discuss recommendations. The food was disappointing...my coconut shrimp seemed to be pre-made and pre-cooked, and the salad seemed to be bagged salad with some black olives and red onion added, at what seemed a little high in price for my taste. On the positive side, happy hour prices for beer and wine were very good as were the selection options. My companion's fish and chips were OK but did not have much flavor. Seating is open-air so those not liking birds might reconsider. Probably best for the younger set, ambience-wise, and especially because of those stairs leading up to the restaurant.

The service was a little slow and the food just average but a fun spot and we enjoyed it enough to go back and try some other menu items. Lots of salads, a real plus.
