Had to play the tourist drinker at least once. Frozen cocktails. Watermelon lemonade and dirty banana are a must have.

The location is great - it's right on the beach and has a very cute tiki theme. The food is just average - I had the tacos and I probably would choose something different if I came back again. The waitress was friendly but got...a few things wrong. The cocktail was great!More

There’s a bit of an odd entrance to the place that’s really not clearly marked. I had two chicken tacos and one beef. The chicken tacos were dripping in liquid while the beef taco was a bit dry. Overall the flavor was pretty good and...the sauce that comes on the side is spicy and a great add on. The sauces that comes with the chips are a bit different, but not the worst. My wife’s fish tacos were lacking fish. She ended up making two tacos out of the three. The fruit platter was great for our smaller children and the wait staff was polite as well. They turned off their music when a musician started playing live music right outside. It was nice to listen and relax in the view. Oh, also the margarita wasn’t really worth drinking. They’ve got a myriad of other options though.More

I don't work there...just visited. Don't remember exact prices but would say medium range...drinks were very tasty and we got to keep the colorful plastic stemmed glasses they came in. Also, they didn't skimp on the alcohol... More
