Ok, yes, this is a dive bar with shoddy furnishes and populated mostly by people playing darts. That said, it's worth going to for the great food. My husband had the bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries (he loved both) and I had the chicken sandwich (maybe the best I've ever had) and the Best. Fries. Ever. Seriously! The bartender...

Jack and Coke burger. I've read the reviews, heard rumors in the winds of Port A, but wow. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and definitely not your typical burger. Sometimes I just want to chill with a cold beer and a good burger, play a little darts, and hang with the locals and the not so locals.... More

The last time we went here, the food was not fit to eat but used to be terrific. So, we gave them another chance. The scotch smelled like kerosene. I've never tasted kerosene but if I did, that scotch would be close. I cannot adequately describe how awful it was. Bad bad stuff. The place was not tidy nor clean.... More

They have big juicy burgers and the fries are good too. Go hungry cause you will leave FULL. free peanuts while you wait, so steer clear if you have a peanut allergy as there are peanut shells all over the floor.

This place was fun. They had a band playing and they interacted with the customers. The food was good and price was decent. It was more than what I expected.

Good burgers, friendly service with reasonable price. Rented a beach cart for the afternoon and took a break here. Tried a couple other places first, but they were not open on Thursday for lunch. First impression is it's a dive bar. Mostly locals when we were there. The people were friendly and the burgers were good.

One of the best burger places I have ever been too. Great service. Free peanuts o eat while having a drink, shell them and throw the husk on the floor. Great service and very friendly waiters and waitresses.

Best Burgers on the island in my opinion and the owner is always looking to make special dishes. The plan is to turn it in to a full fledged restaurant from what I hear and that would be fantastic. The most recent special I had was a wonton crusted Ahi tuna and it was amazing! But I will go there... More
