Just spent a few hours there and loved it. Great views, water so clean, fun bartenders, people having fun. They did a great job rebuilding after the storm! We did not eat anything, just drinks, and they were just fine.

Rebuilt on the beautiful White Bay, this institution is starting to attract the crowds again. Excellent staff, views, and the Painkillers are wonderful! See and be seen at The Soggy Dollar!

Drinks were sort of cheap tasting. Although we are glad we got to stop here, wouldn't recommend this bar over the other three that were in a line. Definitely a bit of a tourist trap. The entire beach area was nice though. Shared with four...More
