“Our Favorite Ixtapa Sports Bar & Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Discovered this place a couple of years ago and liked it enough to return again this trip. Great service, very friendly staff and they put on the NHL Playoff game for us to watch in it's entirety. Since my team was in the finals, we returned a second night and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. One of the staff was nice enough to accompany my girlfriend to the local pharmacy at 9PM to get some mosquito repellent...that's how comfortable we felt with the staff! Above average food at below average prices. Give it a try when you're in Ixtapa and I'll think you'll enjoy it.

We had a great time here, sports bar with Hockey! Beer was cold and the chicken wings were yummy. We also ordered a dinner on one of the 3 nights we stopped by and it was SO GOOD! I can't remember what it was called but it had EVERYTHING, Shrimp-Chicken-Steak, Fantastic Fajitas!

“Excellant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

the staff were great, wonderful food. They play music at nights so you can go dance. The only downfall was they didn't have to go boxes.
