Fun setting and good food

We were lucky enough to stop by here when there were people singing. We had a great meal, and cold beer, and nice entertainment. One hour slipped by, then another, a great place to rest and set a spell.

Stopped in on a weekday around noon. I had passed this bar/rest. during my daily jogs for the past 3 days and it was packed each day around 1:30. Walked by after leaving John's Pass..the sign for a fried shrimp basket peaked our interest, as its simple, but one of my wife's favorites. We split it and ordered beers/drinks...on vacation!!...

The Bamboo is where it is at, for those over 30 - daytime entertainment, buckets of beer, fofo drinks, food - there fish tacos are the best I have ever had! The shrimp tacos are great too. The price is very reasonable - outdoor dining

Clearly there was only one person serving this evening with possibly her son helping her out. Although she was very nice, after realizing that an hour and a half had passed since we received our drinks (water) and ordered our food, scanning the restaurant (it was full of people) we noticed that not a single soul had a meal in...

We are so sorry. After looking into what happened we determined that it was not our cook that yelled at you it was Steve. We have spoken to Steve, the person that yelled at you and he told us that he would be sending you a personal apology. We are so sorry that your food took so long. We had... More

The front of the bar is fully open on the street side which is nice for the open air and atmosphere. Large screen TV to watch the game and friendly bartenders.

We sat down to listen to music and have dinner & drinks. Our server took our drink order (1 wine & 1 drink) and, a minute later, he looked confused and asked us to repeat our order. He then disappeared for 20 minutes. When he finally returned to our table, empty-handed, he again looked confused, stared at us clueless, and... More

We had dinner one night to live music. Dinner was excellent. We went back another day just for a drink on our way back from John's Pass shopping. Great service and a lively bar/restaurant. Well priced.

Second trip to this area and made a repeat visit to the Bamboo Bar. Did not eat, just had drinks. The waitstaff was AWESOME! Shaggy was making our drinks and really made them good and strong. They had a solo act singing and playing guitar which was perfect for this crowd and atmosphere. I love how most of the bar... More
