“Friendly staff and great prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

The beach summer vibe is always present when I go to float! Music on the weekends along with great drinks and food for hard to beat prices. Can get a little too rowdy for families with young kids at times, but for the most part, the people, staff, and place are great!

“Food ok, service marginal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Came to try the messy nachos. Food was decent but we never saw the waiter/bartender again. Waited almost 45 minutes and my husband went up to the bar. We planned on eating and drinking....just had our shared nachos. Could not get anyone to talk to us. The bartenders were too absorbed with two younger people at the bar. Several people walked out. I'd rather go to H2O bar at San Luis.

“Fun bar with view of the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This bar has a really interesting setup. It's half indoors and opens up to the patio area outside and has a pool directly in the middle where swimmers can swim up to the bar. It's not the cleanest bar but it has that fun summer time beach vibe to it. There's usually a band playing on the patio on the weekends. The bartenders make very good drinks and the prices are good.

“Fun little bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Went here twice, and my wife and I had a really nice time. There is a good mix of college kids & locals, and it had all age groups represented. The bar staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Drinks were very fairly priced and good. Tried the wings and was pleasantly surprised. It's also right across from the beach, and walking distance to several hotels.

“Cheap Drink Prices, friendly atmosphere, good jukebox.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Nice place on Seawall Blvd. to have a drink, listen to music, people watch and to look at the Gulf. The place was frequented by locals when I went. Honestly, I have never seen a bar before with an outdoor pool. That could be fun with the right crowd.
