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.

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.

The location and the architecture of this bar are incredible. The Rum Buckets were delicious and fun, but the food was not very good. Our waitress, however, was very friendly and accommodating. All that said--the decor of the bar is a little lacking and the bathrooms are just public beach bathrooms (pretty nasty). Given its INCREDIBLE oceanside location it is... More

Terrific place for a refreshing beverage with a million dollar view of the ocean, beach and boardwalk.

Revamp from its prior 'lounge type' atmosphere to its existing, more friendly & suitable 'beach bar' made this place a great, fun hang out. Labor Day weekend on Saturday night had great waitress service, excellent views & awesome DJ. Only had drinks, so I can't comment on the food. Check out the Rum Bucket. All walks of life here which... More

Its on the beach and there was a bonfire to watch on a Friday night, the dj was great, we are in our forties and he played the best set, took his card! The waitress was a doll, drinks were ok. But the bathroom is right outside of the entrance and therefore public and GROSS, my friend said, if Freddy... More
