Great sushi. The kids with us loved the grill. And the pool. Best atmosphere in Rincon. Shows surf movies on big screen over the pool.

We visited The Pool Bar during spring break. It was packed. So packed that we were seated "downstairs" in a garden area. Unfortunately you couldn't see the movie screen from this overflow area and there were biting bugs. If you go and are offered a table in this area, politely decline and wait for a table by the pool. We ordered several different rolls along with a teryaki bowl. We waited a long time for our food....longer than island time. When the rolls arrived, they were delicious, although seemed to be very hastily put together - no doubt due to the large number of dinner guests. We would have returned as it was just a five minute walk from our condo at Sandy Beach (as long as we could be seated by the pool), but strangely, The Pool Bar was closed during the latter part of our trip.

Sorry about your long wait. Spring Break is the busiest time of year. We keep expanding our kitchens to keep of with our increasing business each year. Our Hostess gives all our visitors the option of upstairs or downstairs seating. When we are very busy the wait is longer for upstairs seating. We do have many of our customers who prefer the garden seating because of the romance and relaxed feeling. Since opening our hours for sushi have always been 5pm-10pm everyday except Tuesday. Next time you come make a reservation for upstairs from our webpage www.poolbarsushi.com, but remember, we are closed Tuesday:-) By next season, we will have expanded our kitchen again to keep up with demand. And thank you for visiting us!

I visited with my partner because we are both sushi enthusiasts and heard great things about this place. It was a little tricky to find but we were glad we did. The top area by the pool was full when we arrived so we were seated on the lower outside area. It was a more private area and since it was darker outside, the lighting made it very romantic. The food was very good and were happy with the prices as well. We ordered an appetizer and 2 rolls of sushi and it came out to around $30. Staff was very nice and helpful also. My only complaint is that you have to order drinks (anything from water to alcoholic beverages) and the food are on two separate tabs and we had to leave our table and go back upstairs only to order drinks and go back to our table. It's inconvenient but it wasn't that bad. We'll be visiting again.

We ate there twice once for lunch which was amazing. The salads and fish tacos were spectacular and the tuna app was amazing. We later went back for dinner which was sushi and which was also very good. Not the best I have ever had but very good.

This place has the best food, is delicious and just insanely excellent. I think it's one of the best places to get food on the west coast, the sushi is great, the egg rolls and the sake, everything excellent.

I think the staff or the servers (waitress, bartender or etc) should be more friendly, sometimes they look like they want to get everything done or with attitude, and sometimes they ignore you. wish they could work on that.

Other than that the place is nice, nice music always and good environment.

Wish you guys closed later than 10pm, because its really good. :)
