The management is the biggest problem and it goes down hill from there. When management doesn't care to come over and ask you how your meal is, you can guarantee your server will care even less. While it is a sports bar/pub, it is by far the worst food and service in South Beach.

We found this place to be the most reasonably priced bar on Ocean Drive - you get 2 large cocktails for $20. We went there and had the mojijo's and they were very nice and after 2 each were quite tipsy so good to know that there was a decent about of alcohol in them. Went there the 2nd evening... More

Decided to eat here for lunch after walking by the yummy looking drinks other patrons where enjoying and it was a great decision. The happy hour 2 for $20 enormous drinks can't be beat, I had the strawberry mojito and it was amazing, they don't cheat by giving you less alcohol like others do that's for sure. My meal was...

Came back from the beach and stopped for lunch. Good food and excellent service. The waiter was reluctant to serve us pina coladas, because he didn't think the bartender did a very good job, but we still enjoyed them very much.

This dump is full of the rudest employees I have ever encountered. The food is terrible and the ambiance is wretched. Techno music is blasting so loud that you cannot hear the person sitting 2 inches from you. No wonder it's usually empty. Do not waste your time or your money and ignore their street clowns trying to lure you... More

This cafe is located on the beach street side of South Beach. There are many restaurants but this is the very best of the others where we ate. We only ate the lunch so unsure about dinner. Each day offers a special lunch for $10 and drinks very reasonable including happy hour with appetizers. The choices included a very good... More
