“Bar food with bugs on the walls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Went with several friends and service was good. The food is just bar food. They have numerous televisions if you want to watch sports. I observed numerous bugs on the walls while eating. They leave the back part of the restaurant open to the tropical plants which attracts bugs so they need to address this issue. I do not think I would dine at this restaurant again.

“Best Bar to Watch Football”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Our vacationing group had four different football teams playing on the same day. We received several recommendations for this place, so - why not?
We walked in and - wow! TV's everywhere!! The staff placed helmets of the teams being broadcast on each television. Indoors behind the bar, in the adjoining rooms, and even outside (those were hard to see, however, because of the sunshine!). We settled in at a booth, and were greeted by our waitress, who took care of us the entire afternoon. We also ordered some food.

“Poor quality fish and chips”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We stopped by December 1 2013 with a party of 9 . Three in our party ordered the Fish and chips and the meal was so big they each had 2 pieces of fish left over. I got the leftovers because I am such a fish lover. Well, the reason the fish was left over was that it was over coated with a not very good tasting mushy flour mix. We spent over $200 that night. The service was excellent the atmosphere fine but 3 guests will never order your fish dinner again. I would think a restaurant on the beach would never serve such a substandard meal.

“Best place to watch sports on the beach ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I can't say enough about this place. Great vibe, great food, cold beer and excellent staff.

Tip: sit at the outside bar looking in. You get the feeling of outside but are involved with the inside bar scene.
