This is the kind of place that you come to have great food! Great burgers! Just in front of the beach, it's a good deal, plus feee wifi which is not the best but still can manage a good convection.

Shrimp, Scallops and Mai Mai. We had it spicy but it wasn't really hot, just right. A must stop... More

We stopped for a quick snack. It was too early for a beer so we ordered bottles of water and nachos with chicken. The food was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It has very nice view of the beach. I recommend.

No frills beach bar. Free wifi, ice cold beer and very friendly staff. What more would we need from a bar??? We'll be paying it a few more visits over the next fortnight.

When we didn't feel like eating at our resort, we stoped by Honky Tonk and took chicken burgers. It was fresh and very good. Good ambiance and our waiter was very nice and welcoming. It close early when there is no cruise in town.
