Went with a group for lunch including people who eat there regularly for the location on the beach. But they warned us that the food was just OK, prices were a little high and the food took forever to come out.I had a $12 quesadilla that took about 30 minutes. In addition to this, I had 4 employees yell at... More

This is a great location and ambiance. Some of the tables sit right on the sand and was great. Live music playing, great weather, but unfortunately the food was not as good as the setting.

Beachside oasis with above average bar food, cold beer and good drinks. It's even better at night , under blazing tiki torches and live music

The food was adequate, but the drinks were watered down and terrible. Certainly not worth the $25 we paid for 3 tropical drinks. Also service left something to be desired. Only two bartenders during the dinner hours during spring break. Not sure if we will return.

Perfect location right on the beach. You could literally get a table on the beach with your feet in the sand. Perfect place to go to watch the sunset. We got there early prior to sunset and were seated right away. It gets crowded but we were lucky and beat the crowd around 6:30-6:45 but by the time we were... More
