You will be doing yourself a disservice if you visit San Pedro and don't go here! Abner is the greatest bar tender, remembers your name and makes some great drinks! Chi is an awesome server, brought us our drinks while we were floating around in inner tubes! The views are amazing, sunsets gorgeous and the atmosphere can't be beat!

This place is right in the middle of the water with great view of the sea. We even saw dolphins swimming by. We only went there for drinks for a couple of times and couldn't tell how the food was.

This place has a very fun atmosphere with funny signs every where. The drinks are good, we also had seafood ceviche and breaded deep fried bacon. Everything was great!!

Go by golf cart or bike! The drinks, the food, the funny signs and the atmosphere were amazing. You can float in the bar's inner tubes and the bartender lowers your beers in a bucket.

The food and drinks are just above average, but we love the ambiance and location here. It's an elevated bar and restaurant on a pier so the view is fabulous. Add in the Jimmy Buffet radio and plethora of inspiring and entertaining quotes hanging all over the walls and ceiling and you get a recipe for a relaxed mellow day... More

Came here twice during our week long stay. Way out on the dock, so nice cooling breeze, super cold buckets of beer and great food. We had the smoked chicken wings and they were AMAZING!!!! They guys working there are super fun and kept us laughing. Great place to just chill and cool off.

This place is just fun! No shirt, no shoes, no problem! We had the conch fritters the first night of our vacation and liked them so much my husband insisted we go back for one last serving our last day.
