Good dive bar

Lovely location overlooking the marina. Great pina colada. The food was good, nothing amazing. Service was slow, but not unfriendly. Waters were never refilled might be the biggest complaint. We had a nice time though.

This place is a dive. Walk in past the hotel pool area, bathrooms are dirty. Nice view of the canal, and a local band was playing that wasn't too bad. Drinks were fairly priced. I did not have any food.

The Tiki Bar and the restaurant area of this hotel are truly a throw back to "Old Florida" and very inviting. Unfortunately I have just learned that there are plans to tare down the entire location and build a highrise hotel and condos. It's sad that one of the last spots to experience the nostalgia of Lauderdale will be gone.... More

The valet parking was only $3.00. The wait staff is multinational and speaks different languages. It's a place to see and be seen. My daughter enjoyed the fried clams and I chewed on the yellow tale. The fish was considerably overcooked. It was fresh and tasty. Just chewy due to overbaking.

Walked over from the Bahia Mar hotel through the marina. The wife wanted to eat outside by the water and we were not dissapointed. Had some conch fritters which were very good, and followed up with excellent fish tacos. The waitress was very attentive and the view of the mega-yachts with the music and a nice breeze made our evening.

I had fish tacos and my husband had grilled fish, we both enjoyed our meal. The tacos were very large and delicious.

Food and drinks are reasonable priced for the area. But the food quality is very good. We ate here several times over our 4 day stay. So we had the chance to try: the fish sandwich, the fish tacos, their ribs and the kids meals. All the food was exceptionally good. Our favorites were the Jamaican jerked fish tacos. Super... More

A short walk from our hotel, the Bahia Cabana is a quiet, casual, Intracoastal Waterfront restaurant with great atmosphere and great food. Menu has anything from seafood to full dinners to standard pub fare. They have live music (a singer playing guitar) some nights but not too loud. Away from the main beach strip, so it is more family oriented.... More

I believe this place was under renovations when we arrived to eat here (the hotel that is).. so a little confusing where to enter.. but got to our seats (great seats along the water).. enjoyed a delicious drink, yummy food and watched the boats come and go!!! Great afternoon.

A wonderful meal, great service from Donna, and a nice "at home" atmosphere. I can't say enough about the fish and chips, though. It was barely battered, perfectly cooked and the fries were crispy. A perfect entree!
