“Awesome Ribs”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

This restaurant is within Casa Del Mar time share resort. On tuesday nights they offer all the barbecue ribs you cant eat for $20US.They are really good. We had a table along the beach under a canvas tent covering about 20ft from the water with a slight breeze. Go there on tuesday if you like ribs but you must have a reservation.

“Best Meal we had in the two weeks we were there.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We held the wedding rehersal dinner here. Catty was GREAT to work with. People had told us that the food wasn't very good. This has really changed! The tuna was increadible! Also "all you can eat rib night" was very good. The young people loved that there are 3 different Happy Hours throught out the day.

“Great evening by the beach”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We've been here a few times before and always enjoy it. The service is always excellent and the food is very good, particularly for the price. You can sit close to the water on the terrace and watch the sunset or the moon on the water. Will definitely return.

“Dinner by the beach”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Our party of 8 went here on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was not crowded and that may have been since it was a Wednesday night. Evidently that is party night at the bar and one can expect a pretty noisy night. The staff was courteous and friendly. We all got different items, meat and seafood, and everyone was satisfied. It did start to rain that night, and the canopy we were under leaked, so we had to move in the middle of the meal. No one ordered drinks; however, most of us got coffee and some desserts. With the service charge, the bill for two came to $86.00.
