I live here in the winters. I’ve been here in the past with female bartenders during happy hour which has been terrible. We were convinced to try it again today and Drew was amazing. Will come back to another happy hour to see Drew!

Very surprised at the cleanliness and decor. Expected a dollar bill covered beach bar, but instead the facility is very neat and well appointed. Server was a true pro who made great suggestions. Our meal and drinks were great! Nice surprise.

Had a feel of a country club. Excellent location and bustling atmosphere but sadly the food was just a bit uninspiring and bland. Service was excellent and friendly. Would go back for a drink but not food - a bit disappointing on that front.More
