These guys have one of the best happy hours I've seen. $2 beers, $2.50 wells, and 1/2 off specialty drinks! And the service is stellar! Tons of interesting locals to watch and a great view to top it off. Wish I could say I loved the fish tacos, but for me, they were just okay. The actual fish was delicious... More

My husband and I stopped there for some nachos and drinks. Most of the typical drinks come premixed in a machine. Order something that is hand made and you'll be happier. The waitress forgot to give us our wireless code as she was the only one working. The outside chairs are uncomfortable, but we were tired and thirsty. Def. worth... More

My fiancé and I LOVED Big Kahuna!!! We stumbled upon it one day after a long day of sightseeing and beach going and just wanted a cold beer and a light pre-dinner snack. We went in and met Gus, the bartender, who was by far the nicest, best bartender I have ever had. We ordered the fish tacos... best fish... More

Stopped by for a quick beverage, and ended up getting a GREAT lunch in the process! My wife and I started to have a beverage only, but the table beside ours was having lunch. It looked soooo good, that we decided to eat lunch as we'll! It was the best decision we had made all day. The drinks were lucious... More

Fun atmosphere, friendly and attentive servers, and free soda for anyone with others who are having alcohol (even if they're not necessarily designated drivers--we were walking and I still got free soda. I gave a 4 star rating and not a 5 because we didn't try any of the food and only had one drink. The bartender also gave me... More

This is a typical island bar. The drinks are good and Happy Hour is a bonus. We had Fish Taco's and they are among the best we have had.

The banana baileys colada and flatbreads were delicious. Loved the location on the waterfront watching the seaplanes land and take off. Service was great. On our list to check out again.

We were here recently on a stop during our cruise from Fort Lauderdale. Isis was our waitress. She was pleasant, efficient, friendly while were dining. My husband and i split a chicken wrap - the portions were the exact right size for us as we are small eaters! I am a Pina Colada lady when on vacation - and they... More
