We got to the island late in the afternoon and decided to get a quick meal. We both had the shrimp basket. It was just ok and the drinks were good, but I would go elsewhere for food. The bands were good.

Music was way too loud and not very musical. For me, I’d rather hear a single or a duo without recorded backup tracks. The boiled shrimp was really good, but the mahi tacos were very very dry.

The food was ok albeit a little plain, the shrimp definitely was not fresh. Overpriced soft drinks. However the live music was fun

We enjoyed our first stop here recently, so we returned a second time. Food by Dido and drinks by bartenders Tom and Jeff were all excellent. We loved relaxing and enjoying the bay view while we ate lunch on two consecutive days and enjoyed their...music. Will return when we are back in town.More

Ceviche is served with crackers. I am allergic to wheat. Asked for corn tortillas (they don’t have tortilla chips) in place of crackers and indicated we would pay extra. Bartender said point blank to my request “we don’t do that”. This is all after they...had already deserved the ceviche to us. Really rude. Take your money? They do “do that”.More

Really nice low key beach bar on the bay. Good spot for watching the sunset. Drinks are good and the bar food decent. Food is peal and eat shrimp, burgers,wings etc. There is not a lot to say about a beach bar

Recently went with a friend. For dinner. We had two appetizers. Ceviche. And shrimp. Both were good. We love the bands that were playing. The drinks and beer are well priced. There is an additional charge if you use your credit card however.

We walked up to sit at the bar and the bartender grilled me about my service animal and refused to serve us. So disappointed- do better.

This bar always has the friendliest bartenders & best sunset seats on the island! Good live music tops off most weekend evenings.

We went out for happy hour drinks, and a meal. The location is great to watch the sunset over the Laguna Madre. The food selection was limited, but what was on offer was prepared well. The live music was a bit of a disappointment. The...live performers would ask the audience for their favorite artists, but he did not know anyone's music request. Unless the audience request Kenny Chesney, he did not know the songs. Hopefully, that was just a fluke with the entertainment. My real reason for choosing this location was to view the sunset, so I was not too disappointed.More

We went on Friday night for the live music, which was advertised to start at 9 PM, but didn't start until 9:30. Small dining area and mostly outside uncovered. Food was average in taste and price. A typical beach bar.

Stopped in with my two kids for lunch. Great atmosphere on the water in walking distance to other shops. The staff was very friendly. My kids shared a fried shrimp basket and fried pickles. It was awesome. I had the blackened fish tacos with fries....Great. Came with some tasty remulade sauce. I really enjoyed it. We will probably come back before we leave!More

Not a family restaurant . We were turned away because minimum age is 21. Nowhere on the website was this advertised as a bar where children or younger adults are not admitted

Fun bar with live entertainment . Food was just ok, very limited menu with mainly snack-type fare. Best to have a drink here after dinner someplace else.
