Best draft in Belize

The food is good, as is the service. I find the burgers pretty expensive, but delicious, so you get what you pay for. Unfortunately, the chips (French fries) served with the meal are the frozen, preformed kind, so order baked potato or mashed potato if you want real potatoes. The deck is... read more

We enjoyed really great burgers, onion rings and fries. All were cooked just right and the prices were reasonable. The environment was very loud and there weren't many people in the room, yet we had to almost yell at each other to be heard. The staff kept turning the TV on obnoxiously loud, changing channels. It is a"tavern", so i... More

A group of us spending the last night of our trip in Belize City came here to enjoy a farewell seafood dinner & sit out on the patio. We had a great time together and the food that we were able to get was really good. However, they were out of almost all seafood (no sign outside stating this or... More

This was the best meal that we had in Belize. They were out of fish which seemed strange for a restaurant on the water, but the waiter recommended the burgers and steaks. Excellent choice. The burgers come in 3 sizes (up to 16 ounces) and were cooked perfectly. The bun was excellent and the Belikin beers kept coming. Service was... More

After a day traveling to the ruins at Altun Ha & The Baboon Reserve our tour guide Frank told us this was the best place to eat. The food was great, and the portions were generous. The drinks are awesome, and the service as fantastic. I highly recommend this place to the weary travelers.

We were there on our trip to Belize city. It looks like American concept. But it was clean and it has its own parking place in front of the restaurant. The food looked better than it tasted but we were finally glad that we ate something familiar in Belize city.

The place is nice, has a great variety of drinks and liquors, and the music and people makes it a good options to have some drinks. The fried scampi appetizer is tasty, good and nicely cooked pasta as well. If you sit out in the terrace there might be some unpleasant smells from the river.
