Keeps getting better!

At the end of the road, before you enter Cholla Bay, you will find Wrecked at the Reef. It has great food and a wonderful setting. The staff are always excellent! Come with a smile and a good time and you will not be disappointed. I recommend the local oysters and chicken wings, although I really... read more

Right on the beach off the beaten path yet easy to find. Good food. Ability to enjoy drinks on the beach dipping your toes into the Sea of Cortez. You can listen to music and play ping pong too.

I like the taco girll fish,seating out side and sip on cold bear. It's a clean place,but it's expensive for mexico. And the best is to pay by passes.no U.S. Dollars.they over charge you by exchange rate and conversion calculation. But can not beat the views. Ask the for the manue by the price in pesos!

We always have at least one meal here. The food is (largely) fried bar food, but it's fresh and the views outside are great. It's a good choice for Sandy Beach visitors.

This is a must visit at Rocky Point! It's a great atmosphere with decent food and drinks! Sitting outside with your toes in the sand, listening to good music and getting served food and alcohol is a fantastic afternoon!!

this place is fun and right by the beach, but I didn't like that the prices were like being in a bar at home. Old port has $2 beers while this place has $5 beers. This is a fun place to check out though!

We visited this bar a couple of times while staying at the adjacent RV Park over Memorial weekend. I was a bit surprised at the prices but I've certainly paid more for less at other beach front restaurants. We had bear, pina coladas and margaritas and they were all pretty much what you would expect, good but not the best... More

Great location on the beach and an awesome live band but BEWARE of drink prices!! They think everyone is a drunk tourist and won't care/pay attention to what they charge. Ordered a round of drinks, went to close out and before I did I asked the waiter to add one more vodka/cranberry on. He came back with the new total,... More
