Awesome place to stop, have a drink and enjoy loud live music, while literally being on the water. Definitely a destination that we drive out of the way to enjoy.

A no-fooling funky on-the-water dive bar. Very generous pours, friendly staff, and a music bed directed at all you Parrot Heads and wannabe Key West outlaws.

Great place on the water to sit and have a drink and a light lunch to watch all the boaters go by. It's a local hangout for boaters to tie up to the dock.

We enjoyed the scenery eating our brunch. They have not cooked items, so I was a little surprised when my beef was cold, but it was delicious. The atmosphere was very nice on the hot, sunny day

The dock bar is a great place to spend the afternoon. The drinks aren't too pricey and the service is prompt. The best part is the view. I live on the water if South Florida and I enjoyed this dockside bar very much.

Found this place on trip advisor and so glad we checked it out. Simple bar at the edge of the pier, good drinks and a view of the lake. Outdoor seating on the pier where we enjoyed a beverage and the views. Great service!
