I opted to hit this spot despite some negative reviews on Yelp and other sites. The reason is that our motel manager not only recommended it, but gave such an enthusiastic rave, I had to see what all the fuss was about.
Spoiler alert: I don’t agree with the negative reviews I read, and was tempted (but didn’t) to waste the time and see if the ‘reviewers’ always leaned towards the negative.
Yes, the place is priced at a premium level, and yes, it is unpretentious as far as ambiance, but YES, the food is great and worth a stop.
We started with the crab-stuffed mushrooms, moved into the massive fresh seafood bowl, and I went with a “tuna burger”, large chunks of albacore, deep-fried, served on a kaiser, dressed.
In my opinion, worth the time and money. Besides, there are California wines by the bottle for as low as $20 and you can take the leftovers away!
Everything was fresh, and freshly prepared. Great waitress, young man cooking who also shows a flair for art (ask to see his sketch pad!). We recommend.
