Fodor's Review

Feeling carnivorous? Sink your teeth into a 22-ounce bone-in, rib-eye steak or 16-ounce pork chops in American-size portions at this open-air restaurant with a great sunset view. Lighter choices include grilled fish and salads, eggplant parmigiana, homemade spinach-and-ricotta ravioli in marinara sauce, and delicious "dorado fingers"—battered fish-fillet strips served with tartar sauce. Margaritas and rum-based drinks flow, and beer drinkers can try Libertas, a Costa Rican craft beer, on draft. Homemade desserts include key lime pie.The decor is decidedly nautical, with fish-themed art on the walls. Fishing and real-estate talk over beer and chicken wings keeps the U-shape bar abuzz. This is the go-to place for traditional holiday meals—turkey with all the trimmings and pumpkin pie—and also for Monday-night football and televised soccer games. There's free Wi-Fi, and the cheerful waitresses speak English.
