The new place

Recently opened as I understand and it appears that the new owners are young. Still the service was good (except when they were very busy) the food was amazingly good for bar food Sit out side is my recommendation

I only tried this place because of trip advisor and my goodness, the burgers were some of the best I've eaten in years! The guys are super attentive and friendly. They have music quite often. The service was great and drinks were cold. Good beer selection.

Close to our rental and just like the title. Saturday night was full of great live music, good eats, and friendly locals! Had the Black and Blue salad, Sliders, and grilled shrimp appraiser all were excellent and affordably priced. Live Music, Live Music, Live Music!!!!!!

We had the Bison burger & fries which were AWESOME AGAIN!!!! The onion rings & spicy Gator Bites were very good also. Great place to call ahead for pick up order at the end of a busy day.

Eight travellers had a really great night in this bar. Food and service were very good only to be topped by Doug Bidwell the Night's Entertainer. Ultimately he attracted a good crowd of mixed ages and genders who enjoyed a wide variety of songs.

It's fun and laid back... it has a real beach vibe. We love to go for happy hour ($1.50 drafts!) for a cold beer (or two) and some cajun boiled peanuts. Good, inexpensive menu and kids love it too! They have live music that starts at 7:00 and an outdoor patio. Fun for everyone!

The hamburgers where juicy, the music fantastic. Great staff - casual dinner after a day on the beautiful beach of AMI.

Food was pretty good. We arrived around 11:30 for lunch and place was empty. Waitress was pleasant. Food was hot and fresh. Mahi mahi sandwich was pretty good.

We've been to this place on several visits to AMI. I love their buffalo shrimp. I've never had it better anywhere else. Its very casual with indoor and outdoor seating, cold beer and good food. good prices as well.
