This place was great! Outside you can sit by the water or in the sand by the volleyball pit and the food was so great! Live music every night in the summer and a great place for family and kids!

This place is very big. They sat our party right away. We were a large group and I get that’s hard but they were very slow. The fried pickles were very good. The burgers seemed to lack any seasoning at all. Just ok.

Had to check this place out after seeing they had real palm trees, sand and live music! We were seated outside at a table in the sand near the band. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. After probably half an hour, we went to...the bar and ordered our drinks. They sent someone to our table to wait on us. She was very apologetic, nobody seemed to know who our waitress was supposed to be but she took over and was attentive after that. It is a very busy place. Not sure we will be back.More

We used the Deck for a birthday party! Great space to have friends hangout. The menu was good too. It was considered a Limited Menu because of our party size but there were still lots of choices. There are lots of people at the restaurant...and it's best to be patient with the wait staff. They are working hard to get drinks and food to where they belong.More

The food was awesome, the waitress was super busy but always available and friendly. We happened to be there for live music which was a lot of fun. There is sand by the outside tables so some families brought sand toys for the kids. Highly...recommend, if we are ever back in the area, it is on the top of our list to visit again.More

We stopped by this place on the 4th of July for a later lunch. Place had a table right away at 2:30pm. The food was okay but a bit expensive for what you got. I had fish tacos and I only had one little like...fish stick about 4 inches long by a half inch wide in each of my three tacos. Not a good value for the price. Also the table was sticky when we sat down and had to ask for it to be wiped clear. Lastly our server Mallory was missing in action for our whole meal for refills, another beer, etc .... sadly, her tip reflected this lack of attention on her part. I mean she only took our order initially and someone else served us the food and we didn't see Mallory for the whole meal. I will say she was nice to us when we were seated, just no follow up. It wasn't like the place was overly crowded.More

These people try hard, from the owner and management to the bar, kitchen and service staff. The burgers are excellent, the boneless wings are really good, the salads and wraps are very good, the white bean chicken chili is as good as any in town....The beer list is quite good, although not what it was before "19", as many places are shut down. The service is very good for a sports bar. The ambiance is good and they are making terrific efforts in these times for safety. We eat here a lot and have seldom been disappointed.More

We eat here about once a week, and the quality is great for this type of place, mostly because they care. Joe (owner) is there all the time and the managers are on the floor constantly, checking. They are highly tolerant on mods to the...menu items and the service is always pretty good, again considering this is a really big bar. The constantly changing beer list is prodigious and very good. The food variety gives anyone something to order. We often order big salad, but burgers, wraps, even BBQ are good. It is unlikely you will be disappoints.More

We sat outside in their beach seating by the water. We were amazed by palm trees and sand beach. Stopped for a quick lunch and delighted with the live music entertainment. We had a salad and appetizer selection and soft drinks. We found the limited...menu had nice selections. They do have quite a chice of craft beers as well as wine, amazing bourbon selection. They have outdoor games area on the sand with a viewing deck, corn hole games and more. A slice of the south in Western Michigan. The inside has an amazing number of tv sports channels and tons of indoor seating. Be advised, drinks and sports fans make for a very loud atmosphere but everyone seemed to be having a great time.More

I consider myself a bit of a chicken wing expert. These were by far the best chicken wings I’ve ever tasted. Not too much sauce. Not overdone. They were even good cold for a late night snack. The server was really good and attentive. We...will definitely come back. Our only complaint is parking, the spots are so tight and there aren’t enough. We almost had to park next door at McDonald’s and walk over.More
