Good bar food and drinks on the beach. Attractive for the location and scenery but it does have good hamburgers and nachos. Not the best restaurant in town but very good Waite staff.

The Beach Bar is a great place to grab cocktails and food with an ocean view. The place is very casual as the name suggests but the food and drink are very good. The ahi tuna appetizer is sushi caliber. There are bar games, cornhole,...More
