This place is a favorite with me, just because it has so many good memories. Very much a part of Santa Cruz, this place is almost directly on the beach. Downstairs it is a quieter dining experience with table linens, attentive waiters and quiet music. Upstairs it gets a bit more rowdy. :) But in a good way. One of my favorite things to do is gather a group of girlfriends and go there for drinks and appetizers- their nachos are wonderful though, if you like nachos be sure to order your OWN plate. :) Fun place to go.
