Unpretentiously simple in decor, comfortable no frills appeal in contrast to its Tipsy neighbor. The drinks are cheaper, beer is cheaper, food is quality and inexpensive and the music is louder on stage. Shuns upscale for tourist trappings and promotes great value for food and drink on a great ocean front location.

The music was okay, nice jamsession going. It was happy hour, but in the end we paid full price for the cocktail. Food was average, nothing to write home about. Atmosphere for a drink is good.

We loved this family owned beach bar. The beach is amazing here as well as the ice cold beers. We came in late and closed the place at midnight. Lots of fun loving people and good music!

This place is right next door to the Tipsy Tuna. It was much more laid back and its right on the beach. The 21 year olds will be at the Tipsy Tuna..not here. Great drinks and great service. The food was good but the menu was smaller than the Tipsy Tuna. Prices were very good!

You will find this place just a tiny bit more upscale than the establishment right next door, which is also a great place. The bar is a little bit more refined and the service and food is a notch up. If that's what you're looking for, this is your place on the beach.

Perfect place to grab a drink when it's hot. The coconut rum will have you feeling the reggae island vibes in no time and the staff are beautiful and warm. The plantain chips are great for a snack!

From the main sidewalk sandwiched between the sand and the main street, you can't miss Barefoot Bar. The décor is as bright and welcoming as the staff and the food is fantastic. Barefoot Bar has great food and boasts not one, but two full service bars. We enjoyed several local rum beverages and their heaping pile of nachos. It was... More
