Great little beach bar for breakfast, lunch &/ or day-drinking right on Dawn Beach. They make their own banana rum which is so AMAZING!! You must try it!!! I also recommend the Guavaberry colada! P.S. They are cash only.

Located so close to Oyster Bay Beach Resort that you can walk there in a couple of minutes makes this a great option for evenings, or hanging out at Dawn Beach during the day with lunch/dinner/drinks available is great.

This place was busy every night, even during the off season. The pizza and drinks were great! We would definitely return. It is right on the beach and you can see and hear the waves coming in during your dinner. A must do! It is convenient to OBR and allows for great food without the drive!

One of the best spots to enjoy breakfast (great prices) and one of the best nice dinners around the oyster pond area. Great value and the views are amazing. You sit on the beach with the breeze from the ocean while enjoying a cocktail. Breakfast is especially great though because of the daylight you see all the way to St... More

We kept going back here for lunch (4 times) because of the great fish sandwiches (grouper), lobster salad, crab salad, the fries, and cheap beers. Tables were under cover with overhead fans right at beach level. Our server, Mr. Grey, kept us fed and well supplied with adult beverages. Beautiful views too.

Felt that the place cannot decide if it's a beach bar or a restaurant - trying to be both but on this performance not making the grade as a restaurant. Little things let it down; poor service; Presidente served in the bottle not asking if a glass required; asking "do you want a dessert or the bill", guess which we... More

One of our favorite places to eat. The food is consistently good and I love to hear the ocean at night.

Nice spot on the beach. Service was slow and the food was good. Very convenient to Oyster Bay hotels.
