Steakhouse
$$$$
“Have the flank steak if you are in a beefy mood. This is one of the more popular places and it's prices are on the tourist end. But they do have a large menu and good food. Drinks are strong. ”

“This is one of those "hole in the wall" places that really surprise you with their food. But be careful - if it says spicy - it is. If oysters are in season, this is the place to get them. ”

Breakfast Spot

“This is one of the great breakfast spots in town if not the best. The ingredients are so fresh and the menu changes daily. The waffle/pancake creations are to die for including a Jasmine Rice Waffle and a Lemon/Poppy Seed Pancake. The breakfast burrito which is on the menu daily is not your typical breakfast burrito. It is light and feels like you have eaten springtime in a tortilla. ”

“While not as good as Alex's, it is a pretty close race. Small place with great hand made pasta. ”

Bar

“A quaint little bar/nightclub only open on select nights. Thursday through Sunday I believe. Open until about 2 or 3 am. Between 8 and 11 pm, it's a cozy atmosphere, great for hangs and cocktails. After 11, it gets pretty busy. Equipped with a dance floor and DJ, but sometimes they'll have live music. Cool place for the young crowd!”

“Rosemary honey glazed fish. Need I say more. It is surprisingly not as sweet as honey glazes I have had and that made it perfection. ”

“Perhaps one of the best Mexican places in town. You get the real deal. It is a favorite lunch spot and closes at 2:00pm so you may have to wait a bit for a table. But don't be surprised if someone offers to share theirs. This is a friendly place! Very budget friendly too!”
