Go here, drink a beer, chill. This is quintessential SPI. Watch the waves roll in. Drink another beer. Island life...

Really great food, atmosphere and the music was awesome. Very laid back and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a place to relax and listen to great music.

This place appeared to be the happening place for beach goers and I had intended to stop in and check out their Happy Hour - but our schedule was so full I never made it in the door :( But we read great reviews on them and hope to include in our schedule next year for the "cool down" place... More

Try the Wanna Wanna drink or the Turbo Pina Colada or both! The gave a pretty decent Ceviche also, but I mostly go for the beach view. Probably the best place on the island to chill...

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.

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.
