$3 steaks were pretty good. Fair price drinks and friendly staff and is a pretty good spot to sit out side and people watch with a few drinks

Great budget lunch and dinner $3 steak / chip or salad on Sunday and Mondays. I recommend to have a meal when is not busy, otherwise your stake will be cold or not cooked as you requested. * I have been there quite a few times. Use to be $3 dollar Budweiser, last week the price when up to $5.

We got fooled by the $3 steak advertisement on the board. The steak which is 200 grams is $3, if you decide to get chips and salad that's $3 each and sauce is $2. Total cost for a meal that has steak, sauce, chips and salad is $11. Steak was average and they are quite stingy on the chips and... More

I really liked this bar as it was busy and lively. They welcome big groups unlike some other bars in surfers. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Service was good. Music was good and they had both live music and DJ music. Drinks were good, a bit on the expensive side though. Great location.
