We Will not be going back here!

Went to the roof top bar on a Saturday afternoon for a cold beer and the view. While we were there one of the employees (my wife thought it might be the manager) was loudly dissing a customer to fellow workers because he thought the customer didn’t read the menu. The bar area appeared filthy and... read more

This place is well know for spring breakers. They always have a great reggae band. The drink prices are a little high but you pay for the entertainment. They have corn-hole, volleyball and picnic tables for everyone's entertainment. There are also food stalls near the bar with good food at reasonable prices. They have a restaurant upstairs but I've never... More

Wanted breakfast before heading to the beach and we were told that we could find it here. Glad we listened and tried the place out. Incredible views, excellent service and where else can you find 2 eggs, home fries and toast for $2.95? There is a full breakfast menu-sausage, bacon, pancakes, waffles, french toast, omelets, breakfast burritos or quesadillas and... More

Great drink and pizza deals at the indoor bar/ restaurant. The views out the window cannot be beat. Our server was very sweet and took great care of us. It's a party resort, but the food and service up top was great in both the outdoor and indoor spots.

We were seated at the western end for the best sunset view. Food was OK; service great. Lots of friendly guests from all over. The sunset brought a party atmosphere. Lovely!

I went to the roof to eat a late lunch on Feb 21st with my one year old son. I waited about 10 minutes or more and no one had even stopped at my table and about five servers passed me by. I even tried to get two of the servers attention but I was ignored. I'm in the serving... More

IF you are on spring break and you want a crazy, weird, sticky floor, florida cracker kind of place - this is it. Do NOT bring your family. Do NOT come if you do not want a college bar scene, Plus - what kind of lobby has a go cart track, and some very unsavory looking characters lurking in the... More

We went to the Lani Kai on a Sunday morning in July. In town looking at real estate and had done about all we could stand on a quick trip with a lot to accomplish. The rooftop at the Lani Kai was just what we needed. The boats were beginning to line up at anchor and the beach DJ was... More
