“Prepare for a gorgeous sunset and lively bar scene”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Set above the bay in Cruz Bay, this location alone is awesome for sunset but the bar is perfect for Happy Hour. We went a couple times and there was always a lively crowd, everyone talking to each other and the bartenders keeping everyone connected with the latest drinks with tastes and temptations along with your ordered drinks. We had fish tacos and as promised they were really good and well priced. We heard the place is for sale and I hope the new owner gives it a facelift as it could also be a great place for dinner but for now the bar rocks.

“Come for happy hour!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The happy hour has some pretty awesome deals. $3 for a good margarita from a generous bartender will start any afternoon off on the right note. The other drinks looked pretty good too. The tacos were tasty, and $5 buys you two with a lovely selection of fillings. Plus the options for wings are endless, and at $1 each, a girl can get full for a single Abraham (or five Benjamins). I can't say I've been to too many restaurants in Cruz Bay, but I wouldn't skip this one during happy hour!

“Tasty wings!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We sampled the wings at this fine establishment and all were unique and tasty. The view is also rather nice, and the bar tenders are fast and friendly.

“Delicious Food!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Definitely get the red snapper. It comes as a whole fish with tail and head but really delicious! Drinks were great too. We also got the mussels-- those were so so, something about the sauce tasted a little bitter.
