So I came here to meet with an old high school friend. He suggested the Undertow because it is casual and usually not too crowded during the week. I arrived to a beach bar with an excellent view, setting sun, and cool beach breeze. The waitresses behind the bar were attractive and Johnny on the spot to refill your drinks.... More

My husband and I love this place. It's right on the beach! Volleyball, cornhole, and the sugar soft sand are right there for you to have fun with. The drinks are always ice cold and very good. Bartenders are always in a good mood and ready to have fun.

My wife and I stay at a hotel about a mile down the beach. It's a great walk along the shoreline and by the time you get there a cold beer is in order. The service is always friendly and it's clearly a locals hangout. If you enjoy watching beach volleyball this is the spot.

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
