Best gay bar in Montezuma! This is the only place to be on weekend nights in Montezuma!

During the day the food was ok but really the back open patio with stunning view of the cost is what everyone will want to experience. It's a very casual vibe overall. Once night falls on the weekend then the party starts. Pretty Girls, hot guys, both will enjoy fun dj dancing, drinking all night... read more

This was a great place to both eat and have a few drinks. Had the chicken and avocado sandwich the first time I was here and the Chico burger the second - both were absolutely delicious!

Beauty view of the beach and had some postcard-worthy table/seat locations outside. Food was average, but was expected from a 'pub style' restaurant. Had the garlic shrimp and chicken fajitas. My wife didn't like her fajitas but my shrimp/sauce and plate pairings were good.

What a great bar! Love the tequila shots with the great barmen and service was brilliant. Fun guys! Had some great nights here partying during my visit to Montezuma. Loved just sitting out the back garden by the sea drinking margaritas and listening to great music! I will return

Stopped in for a couple of beers after the beach Service was somewhere between surely and rude. With so many other beach bars along the Main Street in Montezuma, why bother with one that doesn't seem to want your business Didn't order food - or even that second beer. Walked down the street Much better

You can see the bar as you're walking by... SO hot it was calling us and the cold beer we knew were there for us ... much less expensive than the Montezuma restaurant & bar down the road on the corner ... didn't get opportunity to go in and eat

The view is great. Our waiter however was surly at best. He was much more interested in chatting with his friends thsn waiting on us. When I ordered the happy hour marguerita (2 for 1) he basically asked me three times if I was "sure" then it took 15-20 minutes for our beer and marguerita' stop arrive. After the drink... More

I didn't eat here, just stopped in for a beer with my husband after hiking up to Montezuma Falls. I will say the view is great! The seating is practically on the beach and everyone was super friendly!

I've visited the bar a couple of times previously at night and never really even noticed the dining area out the back - maybe thinking it was a different restaurant. It's a great bar - the place to go in town - but personally I would never have thought to eat there. Seems I've been missing out! A great location... More

We had the fish and it was wonderful. Our waiter was wonderful and the view is spectacular. The only bad thing I can say, which isn't all to bad, is there was no hand soap in the restrooms. Not just that they were out, but the establishment actually possessed no soap I was told. I may be a stickler for... More
