Anything to do with pulled pork at Ballyhoo is super yummy. William was great. It's conveniently located near the ferry boats that take you to Palomino Island. If at all possible, stop in and eat here instead of at Palomino Island. The service is so much better and again, that pork was delicious.

We didn't sample the food here, but their drinks were amazing. I enjoyed Ballyhoo far better than Splashbar- drinks wise and atmosphere wise. This bar is located near the ferry to Palomino Island and right outside of Stingray Cafe.

We caught a tuna on Bill Wraps fishing.com and the chef cooked it for us 4 ways !!!!! And they served Miller Lite (which is hard to find in PR)

We ate at the Ballyhoo Bar and Grill our last night. The views are great and the service was good. Mr. Island ordered the burger. I ordered the Mahi Mahi. The food was ok. However, I thought the food was much better at Bella Vista.

This was a good place to go with our kids, right on the water and we didn't spend a fortune like we did at other places. We had rice and beans and cheese quesadilla, hummus and bread and veggies (good but only 2 carrots and 2 spears of asparagus), both very tasty. Husband had burger, said not bad. They had... More

The kids loved the tram ride down the hill to the marina, and checking out the boats after dinner. Service was friendly and casual, the food was OK. The waterside atmosphere was very pleasant.

As we are learning, after 4 days here at the El Conquistador Hotel, a good meal at the hotel is a challenge. We decided to go simple for dinner, and simple is this restaurant. The food average, but sitting in the marina on the water was enjoyable. So far finding a good dinner at hotel has failed. The one plus... More

We stayed at the elcon in the marina so this was a hot spot for us. Carlos was by far the best service we received in all of the resort. The food was ok as bar food goes...the atmosphere was great... There is an old dirty beer smell...yup.

Had dinner here. Burgers, chicken fingers and fries, and wings. Pretty standard bar food. The Ballyhoo rum drink was excellent. The prices for all this was really more than it was worth in the end. Our waiter was excellent. Overall, merely so-so.

My boyfriend loves his chicken wings and was so happy to have this so close to the water taxi to Palomino Island. Nice views and wonderful pub food.
