Small little beach bar to sit and have a quick snack and pass the time right on the beach. Gives you a real island feel..... very quaint, local restaurant.

This place is a great little location...at the end of a pier right near the Radisson on Palm Beach. We went there a few times during our stay...for lunch, dinner and even to meet friends for drinks. Did not disappoint. They have a decent menu with lots of sandwiches, appetizers....and of course great drinks. The servers and bartenders are upbeat... More

Staying at the Radisson, we ate here 3 times when Scott's Brats was closed. It has a great view and not really overpriced, but they should give you fries with your sandwiches and hamburgers without charging another $3.50. Burgers and grouper sandwiches were good. The sloppy Joes were dry and the grilled cheese sandwich was like a cheese toast. Nacho... More

I ordered the cheeseburger and curly fries and it was yummy. The drinks weren't very strong, seemed they were cheap with the rum and coke because I could barely taste the rum, all Ice and coke. We went on a Wednesday night and enjoyed our salsa lesson and then watching the locals get down on the dance floor, incredible salsa... More
