We arrived for happy hour and Karaoke on Monday night. Met amazing locals and a great bartender, named Amy, who made best drink called snake creek tea. Also try the Aquaolic or Smuggs perfect Margarita. The night we went to visit a few dolphin showed up around boats in the cut. The sunset was another end to a beautiful night.... More

We went here last minute with a group of 24 boy scouts the night before our Seabase arrival. They found us places outside (where we wanted to sit) and took great care of us. We really appreciated the special attention. Focus was very good. Especially the lobster. Thank you!
