Cute bar in the Havensight area

Good tacos ($5.00) cold beer, friendly staff. Outdoor open restaurant in safe area. Stopped in for a drink and ended up eating there. Would certainly return.

This was by far my favorite place to eat. Had food we liked that tasted good. Prices were more reasonable than other places we ate at. Nice view of a marina. Would definitely recommend it

The beer was ice cold and the sandwiches were good. We sat at the bar for a quick lunch before heading back to Bolongo Bay.

My wife and I shared a pizza. It was pretty good with a relaxed atmosphere. Don't know why they don't sell t-shirts, I would have bought one.

Very popular with the yacht crews and younger age group. Often have special event nights and live music. Easy to park and great setting. Bar staff pleasant and helpful.

This was our first meal not on the resort. It was in a great location with shopping and views of the boats docked. The food was good. We were there for lunch so we had sandwiches and chips and fish.

We hung out here while waiting for our sailboat and we ended up eating lunch here as well. The nachos were yummy but I loved all the frozen drinks - I was on vacation after all!

We stopped by this place on our way back to the cruise ship. We enjoyed the turtle pizza and drinks. The prices were a bit high, but we didn't mind it so much.
