High Tide

High Tide offers high quality dishes in a casual setting. While lunch offers casual entrees like hamburgers and tacos, dinner has a bit higher taste of meals, including skirt steak and seared tuna. However, do not forget this is a "bar" and grill, so there is also plenty of cold drinks to order.
