We stopped in right as they were about to shut down for the night (around 10:30) but Cheyenne kept the place open and let us stay and drink till 2! We had a great time visiting with him and playing music, and one of the cooks even went back in the kitchen and whipped up a delicious snack for us... More

Good for the tourist but we'll pass. It has a fun patio with thatched umbrellas and live music. 80s-90s this day. What we didn't care for were the bartenders bickering back and forth over a couple dollar tip and one texting on the phone almost constantly. We actually moved to the outside area and that was better.

Love the atmosphere, love the the staff, love the entertainment. The food... not so much. Stop in for a drink and fun but skip the food.

Basic bar under cover with live music weekends and a good choice of drinks. They serve food but I didn't bother with it, mostly looked fried.

After a couple of hours strolling around all the stores and boutiques in John's Pass, my family decided to make a pit stop here. At 6pm on a Tuesday it wasn't too crowded and the range of tunes being played was mainly cool retro and right up my street. The initial service was quick and the waitress very friendly. Food... More

We met as a family group of 20 plus people and were quickly accommodated. The food was good, the drinks great and the live music wonderful! A great place to spend the evening, relaxing and enjoying the evening breeze and music.
