If you’re looking for a new and unique place to go for a meal, watch some sports all in a light, cheery setting, then Hurricane Grill & Wings is the place to go.

The first of its kind on the West Coast, the restaurant offers a wide   variety of delicious menu items and an atmosphere that makes you feel you’re hanging out in a beach shack on an  island in the Caribbean.

The Yuengling Beer-battered fish sandwich was delicious.

“This restaurant is something different,” said Kitchen Manager Jorge Mazariegos. “It’s like bringing the   flavor of the Caribbean to Antioch and California.”

It’s owned by twin brothers David and Jack Nguyen, who’ve been in the restaurant business owning Denny’s for the past seven years, and their partner Paul Dhaliwal, who’s been in the industry far longer.

“We came to Antioch, because it’s a growing city and we love the family feel of the community,” David said. “We’re a family dining restaurant, first and sports bar, second.”

“We offer 37 rubs and flavors for wings and anything else we have on the menu,” said Paul. “We’re more than wings.”

On their menu you’ll discover that’s a fact. There you’ll see fish such as mahi, tilapia and salmon, a Philly cheesesteak, a build-a-burger with choices of toppings, plus soups and salads, tacos, sliders and desserts, too.

Austin Palmer, Corporate Trainer for new restaurants said their slogans are “Fresh and flavorful options” and “Live with flavor.” He’s right.

You have to try their unique and tasty flavors, such as Raspberry Ice, which includes horseradish, and Maple Pepper, as well as mesquite.

Antioch residents Monica Baumann and Mike Pollard joined me for dinner, there on Saturday, December 26th during a pre-opening.

Monica ordered the Yuengling Beer-Battered fish sandwich and said “It was cooked to perfection and the sweet potato fries are not to be missed. The sea salt caramel cheesecake was amazing.”

Mike had the Hurricane Steak Philly sandwich and the house made kettle chips which were “tasty and crunchy.”

“The portions were hearty and the cheese steak was excellent,” he said. “The chicken salad lettuce wraps were just the right amount of spicy.”

The atmosphere is welcoming, the color scheme is cheery and it’s bright inside. Plus, the service was great with a team approach. We were asked, by four different wait staff if we liked our food or needed anything.

Located in the former Uno’s Chicago Grill at 4827 Lone Tree Way in Antioch, the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday beginning at 11 a.m. and on Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. They’re open until Midnight Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m., Friday and Saturday.

    Was there on the weekend. 12:30pm Hardly anyone else. Food was ok, they omitted the French fries, did not ask for refills, service was slow however at least 10 people were standing around the hostess station doing nothing. They should have been sweeping the floor as under the tables looked like yesterdays garbage.

    They do have a good selection of gluten free items, the ribs were good, no sauce as ordered.

    Sounds interesting. Their food pics on Yelp look appetizing.
