The bar and restaurant is right on the beach, so the view is fantastic. Sandra gave us great service at the bar and was very personable. The food was pretty good and we ended up having lunch there 3 or 4 times during the week since we were using their beach chairs.

Good location, very busy bar, music, goof for larger groups. Service was indifferent. Food boring and bland. Lots of flies.

Love the variety of food, always great service and something is always happening. Whether it be movie night, crab races, fire dancing, music trivia, live music - this is the place to be.

My husband and I stopped by this bar a few times during our week long stay on the island. We love, love, loved the fire dancers on Sunday night! Really neat to watch! We also participated in the music trivia night and ended up winning - walked away with a $40 credit to use on our next visit. Very cool!... More

I guess it was our fault for assuming the "snapper" was red snapper as usual, but it happened to have been yellow tail, which does not taste as good. Asides from that, it was not well cooked.

We enjoyed stopping here either before or after the beach. OR BOTH !! The Coronas with lime seemed to taste better here !! La la monkeys !! Try one ! The "miami vice" beverage refreshing but ask for a double !! Right on the beach.! Friendly staff, tropical atmosphere. Watch the sunset on the bay and relax!!
