My family went here in the early Seventies.  I have this vague memory of it being very dark inside with all kinds of nautical-themed paintings on the walls.   Sea monsters?  Ship wrecks?  It’s all pretty much a blur but I remember thinking it reminded me of The Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland.  Anyone have any photos of the interior?  — Jason Lewis

Rene played guitar in the bar – sang and wooed all the gals!  They served great grilled swordfish. Big Ben Chollar from Stinson would be there for dinner and they would put two or three huge baked spuds together end to end and pile sour cream on like a giant mountain, just for Ben!  Mik & I had dinner there on May 16, 1970 – I had that swordfish. I remember well because our son, Hogan was born the next day!  Loved the Ancient Mariner.  — Suzi Jacobs Beatie, January 23, 2014

Fred the waiter; green salad with blue cheese and some seasoned rice wine sprinkled over it; huge artichokes and a fun bar! My husband took me there on first date, or was it El Rabozo? Either way – both were early date destinations. — Kathleen Devlin, January 27, 2014
