Although the food is good the price of drinks and food is high. We will not return as there are better places at a more reasonable cost.

For sure there are other places with lower costs, but are not located on 5th Ave in the middle of all the action where we are located, offering all that we offer, and they are not better. More

Came here our first night in Playa to watch the Patriots game. Big TV's and sports bet inside. It's a good place to watch a game and I would suggest the buffalo wings.

I've been here multiple times and I'm just not impressed with the service everytime.. I keep giving it a chance because of their food menu, so much to choose from.. but if you love loud music this will be a good place

We really enjoyed this place for a few beverages and some appetizers. It wasn't too crowded and the service was really good. Never made it back to the sports book. Men's bathroom has a great collage on wall.

Air conditioned back room with sports wagering and about 10 flat screens, and if your game gets boring there is dancing on the bar top out front, right in the middle of the main strip.
