This bar has everything, great beach, great drinks, great atmosphere, and the best of all, pretty bartendresses.

You can't beat having a drink and watching the sunset at the Undertow Beach Bar. Great place to meet new friends. The beach of the best and they have volley ball nets so you can play. If you want to relax they even have a deck with beach lounge chairs to get a tan.

We came the week after spring break...so we thought. There was still a lot of people there. The first attempt to go there we were unable to get into the lot as they were full. The next night, we got it and it was great. Right out the back door they have the beach, volleyball, and other games. Inside they... More

Since there's legally no drinking on the beach, this was an awesome spot to breakup the beach day and meet up with friends. Some of the days were busier/more packed than others, but either way the service was pretty consistently good, the drinks proportional to the price and just a fun place to hang out. The seating up on the... More

I have visited the Undertow several times. It seems that to visit mid week in the evening is far different from visiting on a weekend. I will give it another weekend try, but not mid week unless I want to feel unattended, neglected, etc. Weekends are really where this place comes alive. It was disappointing that they no longer served... More

I've been here before and loved it... This past weekend, we went back and it was horrible! There were 4 girls behind the bar and they were more interested in fixing their hair and talking than serving their patrons. We needed smoke signals to get a drink. I'm very disappointed.

It was OK. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there though. We went because it was within walking distance of our condo. We had a hard time getting a bartender's attention to order in the first place and never could get her attention for a refill so we moved on. Not the cleanest of places.

Went there for a long time. Most recent trip I had a waitress whose main worry in life was that that she was leaving work in 20 minutes and that I had to stay near her in order to have a tab. She then proceeded to charge me $6 for a bud light. But this is only the latest example.... More

If you are looking for bartenders that rush to serve you and really good food don't come here. But the location and set up of this bar make up for it. The outdoor area is perfect with an upstairs balcony to soak up the sun. The bar leads right out to the ocean so you can hang out and go... More
