Wow, they let you mix your own drinks...how do they do that! Great beach, next to Soggy Dollar, great drinks and live music too! Way fab.

We ate here one day and the food was really good, but seemed pricey. Still a fun spot for lunch and I recommend you meet Gertrude!

My husband and I went here a couple of years ago and I forgot to rate. What a very quaint place. Gertrude is a very sweet woman. Food was fantastic but the drinks even better! She lets you put your own liquor in your drink! Even the guests are very friendly. Most of the people we met have been there... More

Called in for lunch on Christmas Day after a few drinks in the Soggy Dollar bar. Very friendly staff and excellent service. Pour your own drinks from the bottle and excellent beach food. Family of 8 on Christmas Day, lots to drink and eat for $330.00 Really great place!

A high end place it's not. Customer service isn't a priority either. But I mean, you're on white bay and you pour your own drinks...what more do you want? If you want service, go to the Ritz. If you want to hang out at a laid back bar away from the maddening party crowd & did I mention, pour your... More

Don't expect too much for a restaurant that doesn't rely on repeat business. The beach is beautiful but crawling with tourists so Gertrude and her staff don't have to make too much of an effort. We ordered the squid rings. They were good but expensive. To be fair everything on White Bay is good but expensive.

Limited menu, overpriced, poor service and poor quality food. Table was wiped with disinfectant before we had left the table! Gertrude could not even be bothered to make the drinks and plonked the bottle of gin on the bar.... Very clever as she then charged a fortune for a gin and tonic after we made it for ourselves. Have a... More

Hired a sunbed for $5 at this bar which is right on the beautiful beach. The bar has a very laid back approach and even allows you to mix your own rum punch to the strength you want. Rest rooms surprisingly nice. We had a good fun day here.
