New Owners Scott & Barb are doing an awesome job! The Bottoms Up Tiki Bar is a lot of fun! They use a pontoon as a stage. On weekends they always have some type of entertainment it the tiki bar.

Service slow, unorganized staff. Took about an hour to get served. Needs better management. This used to be a very fun place to go with friends and family. Hopefully something can be done to improve the service.

Julie at night is great but the day time server is a little curt with patrons. Food was okay but I am a vegetarian so I have a limited opinion.
