The place is small, part of an Inn and all outdoors, casual but very nice just to sit back eat, have a drink and relax. They sell fried food.

Last two days I took my company over for a drink and great view at Wanna Wanna Bar & Grill.. hadn't been over there and years but was sure glad I went back. The atomosphere is so relazing, breezy and the perfect spot to have a great appitizer - drink - laugh - and people watch. So good the first... More

Delicious little burger place with the best drinks on the island! Great seasoning on the burgers and fries, and there's a great view of the beach.

Based on reviews, we drove here to eat dinner the first night. Whoa were the reviews wrong. This was a walk up to order bar/shack. Seriously there was hot dogs, hamburgers and maybe a hush puppie on the menu. Said...no way and walked out. Not at all what I was expecting.

I've always liked it here. The foods good. Good music close to the beach. Drinks are priced ok. But every time I've been here lately there have been a group of cigar smokers upwind stinking up the whole place. I personally hate cigar smoke. Pretty sure I'm not alone.

Best view of the beach. Not a ton of choices for food, but the bar tender was extremely attentive, and the margaritas were great! Great family place right off the beach that you can even wear your swim suit to.

This little bar and grill was awesome - food is good, not too expensive and we were right there on the beach. Staff is friendly and the scenery is out of this world. We really enjoyed this place on the beach and highly recommend laying out your beach towels close by this place.
