Great view, we sat at the bar, I was amazed by the bartender knowledge, the manager Crystal was very attentive. Defiantly coming back for one of Juan's mojitos! I came by boat, I hit the wrong place, but I loved it

We went here for drinks a few times last winter and it was fine but not amazing. However we have been twice this summer and the bar has gotten much better! This is due to 2 things: finally a decent draft beer selection outside but primarily due to the bartender Juan. He amazingly remembered everything about us when we came... More

This is a great place to grab a drink & relax. Awesome view, great beers on draft & terrific, friendly service! We love chatting with Juan at the bar. It's dog friendly too. If it's windy on the bayside check out this ocean side spot, you'll love it!

We also ordered the calamari, the smoked fish dip and the tuna nachos; all delicious. We have gone there 2 times my husband and I. And a third time to have... More

As always we had a relaxed, enjoyable experience there. Juan was on point with the service despite having a full bar and us as his only table. Try the Mango Ribs!

This is an open air restaurant under a canvas roof. The inside bar has been eliminated so the "intimate bar" on their web site does not exist. It is comfortable if there's a breeze because it's on the ocean and the view is very nice. I frequent about once every month or so. The food quality is good, but a... More
