Really nice place to have dinner by the sea. Nice view. Friendly staff. Food is good and the special margaritas are really creative.

Besides being great for people and boat watching and chilling, the food and drinks are fantastic! Service was good every time that we ate here and that was 3 times in 2 days! When i was told that the main Chef had actually trained in Italy, I asked for and received a plate of pasta with oil, garlic and chilies.... More

I loved everything about this place, my favorite restaurant of the week. The food is simple, fresh and delicious, the service is excellent, very friendly. On top of that, the prices are very low compared to most places in town, the wine is good and the pour is generous. And the setting is absolutely lovely, on the pier. I went... More

Seriously, the fish tacos are yum. We were in Isla for a week, and the second time we went to Bally Hoo, the server remembered my order. Love it.

We promised ourselves we would eat at different places this trip, but we had to stop in for their HUGE margaritas and to watch the sunset ( from DMArtin's table, thank you very much). Service so nice and friendly, margaritas great, sunset beautiful. We really love Ballyhoo and so will you!

Our goal this trip was to try new restaurants that we had never been to before. On our last night, in front of a beautiful sunset, we just had to go back to Bally Hoo. Fish tacos and fried fish, beers and margaritas soooo hit the spot. One of our better meals with a twist of sadness that we were... More

This is my wife and I's go to place each evening for sunset. The wine pour is heavy and priced fairly. The view is to die for. It can be hard to find because it sits on the end of a fishing dock and tucked in behind the gas station which is always busy but a gem once you locate... More

We loved our cevhice with octopus, scallops and fish and it was enough serving for an entire meal. We also ordered the fish tacos, which were flavorful and an extremely generous portion for the price. Our catamaran captain recommended this place, and I'm thrilled he did!
