Fun drinking spot by the beach!

Loved this place! Right on the beach, great rum buckets, average shore prices. Must love loud EDM, which we do. Some might find the music too loud, but we loved it.

Two large bars both with ocean views. Drink selections are great, large buckets of whatever you want to drink and service is excellent.

It's located beach front of the Convention Hall, tucked right in the corner for a perfect Asbury Park view. Grab a beach bed, order a Rum Bucket, Guac and chips... Chill and have fun! 'nuf said

Only had drinks there. $8.00 for a gin & tonic in a SMALL little plastic cup. Music was very loud. There are nicer places along the boardwalk to go and enjoy the scenery

I have a more detailed review on Yelp but the service here was terrible. The food was average and quite pricey. They didn't even have what I wanted so I had to pick off my boyfriends plate. Every time we asked for something, it would take 10 or more minutes to get. I would never go back here. The only... More

If you like to sit and relax and have a drink on a nice "perfect ten day", this is the place to do it. It was a lovely August afternoon and the views of the ocean and beach are truly spectacular. We had eaten here in the past and the food was not bad. But it's now about the food.

We came after Labor Day so the menu was very limited. Not much for the kids. The homemade chips were strange tasting - like the oil used wasn't very fresh. The setting was nice but it would be better if the bar had its own bathroom instead of he public bathroom. The margarita I got was tiny. Still it was... More

I read the other reviews and find it hard to believe that they are talking about the same place as I am. Went there yesterday afternoon and couldn't be more disappointed if I tried. Very bad service from indifferent bartenders, incredibly loud dance music (a truly bad mix to boot) played over a terrible sound system with broken speakers, no... More

The balcony over looks the beach - its outdoor setting makes it live up to its name by far. the rum buckets had a little too much juice in them for me especially for $14 a lot of ice and pineapple. But the DJ was good and Taylor our server was awesome. Definitely a great place to check out -... More

Get the Rum Bucket! My friends and I grabbed a little snack and a Rum Bucket after our day on the beach. The bartenders were really cool, the music was loud, and I really felt like I was on vacation.
