Great location a couple of miles up the beach on the beach. Very good Margaritas for $5. Only place we went to more than once. It reminded us of The Office in Cabo! First visit we had a combo appetizer. The Chile Poppers were exceptional. Second visit, we had Coconut shrimp which were large, and shrimp and fish baskets. All... More

Wonderful waterfront beach bar, with great food to boot. Dined here several times during early February - including during Super Bowl - and was pleased both times. Live music at night tops it all off. Highly recccomend the food, great service, and the full bar!

The 'new' Wrecked is right on the beach by Cholla. The staff is spot-on with service. Attentive but not over board. Love their fresh raw oysters. :-)

This place is great for a relaxing time. Located on N. Sandy Beach Wrecked offers good food and drink. Located directly on the beach, outside seating is fun. Wrecked even has 2 sets of "bags" for a relaxing fun time with friends.

We've stopped at Wrecked at the Reef each time we've visited Rocky Point. We have taken our friends there and introduced them to "The Reef" and they too now visit each time they head to the beach. Food is great and the wait staff is very attentive. Everyone that works there seems to always have a smile!

Talk about a beach/biker bar. Drive up and right away you know this is going to be fun. Just stopping g in to look and a drink or drinks and a meal. This is a fun quick stop or a longer party time. Large screen TV's for music videos or sports events.

We visited the Reef in off season (January). Very friendly staff, good food (my husband's chimichanga was excellent - maybe Mexican food is the better choice). Will definitely go back to enjoy some live music or have lunch outside!

Great band, service, and drinks. It is a steal at $50. Good decorations and champagne toast. Drinks just kept on flowing and the band kept on playing. Spill a drink? it was cleaned up in seconds. These guys are on top of things and make sure you have a great time.
