Great for Bugers and Drinks

Great restaurant for burgers and beer. very nice view of the bay and all of the boats. Make sure you try the bluebeard burger, it is an absolute must. We went back a couple times because of the live music and relaxed feel. Some of the reviews mentioned poor service, we didn't notice that at... read more

Good food, closed early, near the beach, great view, entertainment, great happy hour, If you eat at Buccaneers you do not have to pay for beach chairs. Beach service for food and drinks

The fruit punch is nice however the food wasn't all that. Could've stayed home and do the same or maybe even better. The chicken didn't taste anything like the menu described and was very dry. The ribs was too dry like it was near burned. The Tuna steak burger was nice but had to ask for the tartare sauce. It... More

We went for a mid-afternoon snack. Even by island standards the service was both slow and indifferent. Wait staff not particularly friendly . . . which is quite unusual on this island. Menu was pizza heavy, fish light. The drinks were not memorable. Generous size, but little flavor. Would avoid this and go next door to the Greenhouse for a... More

They have a great happy hour event everyday. We liked the proximity of this place from our hotel. They usually have a band that plays local music.

This place is fun! The first couple of times we stopped by for drinks the bartender was fast and very funny! Prices are average. We also had lunch here once - service and food were good. Dogs wander around the whole island, this outdoor restaurant included - but don't let it scare you off - if you don't bother them... More

This restaurant is great especially for the younger generation. The staff is great. The service is good and the food is very good. It's located on the ocean with a great view. In the evenings, there is a bond fire with music for the young people and those young at heart. I recommend this restaurant.

Seriously this place rivals the rib joints in Memphis. I've eaten ribs all over US and these melt in your mouth!!! A must stop with a great view.

I don't know if it is same impressive during the day time, but in the night share couple pizzas can be more than great. Very crowded and noisy, but I liked it. may be that's what is necessary not to feel hungry anymore. Would love to come back.
