Friendly staff, opposite the beach so sitting at the windows, which on the warm day open up, doesn't get much better. There are also plenty of tables outside to enjoy a beautiful summers nights as well.
The best seafood basket for $10...wasn't expecting much but it was excellent

“Saturday night venue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

I went here on a Saturday night with my girlfriend, to have a few drinks and chill out, Was a decent size crowd with some alright music playing, typical small town 'club' type stuff - you know what I'm talking about right? top 40 'mixed' to make it 'more exciting'. Pretty much what you would expect.

There was a $5 entry fee, which I wasn't overly pleased about as we arrived about 11ish... Seriously - $5, why bother?? Won't keep the scummy people out and it just annoy the rest of us.

Tried to get money out of the ATM, didn't work - I was given attitude by (what I assume to be) the panicking manager who told me to 'listen to him for a second' while pointing at me. I might point out I was sober at this stage. Then again knowing these sort of venues I can imagine he is well used to dealing with morons all night so I cut him a bit of slack and let him do his panicking by himself and went to the bar to get a drink.

Average prices, spirit mixers aren't poured with a shot glass to measure (surprising for a small venue) which added value and staff were efficient in getting drinks.

Very good looking crowd in of young people - indeed it seems as if everyone under 25 on the island was there that evening. Predominantly female crowd - so lads, enjoy.

Not a bad experience just not fantastic, but it is sort of what I was expecting. Go there - get far drunker than I did and you'll probably enjoy yourself.

“Bar only”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Stoped in for a drink with a mate, had a few cocktails, some staff where trained more than others in drink making. cocktail where good... dung bug? was great 2nd time around when there was bananna liqure in it. Nice layout, has a small small club upstairs (not open this night) menu was basic pub fair, we decided to eat around the corner at sherwoods (nice). Free poker was on with APL but no venue prize such as voucher so did not stick around. Great setting & freindly staff with nice views of the ocean. Will be back maybe meal to soak up my excessive cocktail's.
