Owner Scott has created a fantastic beach bar over the bridge in San Pedro! You can float around in inner tubes and they will lower buckets of beer down to you! The atmosphere was rowdy - lots of visitors' comments written all over the bar and great tunes playing!!

It’s a bar, over the water. They have inner tubes to lay in the water and will lower buckets of beer down to you. That should be enough said to make you stop in for a drink to check it out while on the island. For those that need a little more convincing…the staff there is awesome! A very friendly group of people. The food is excellent. My wife and I got married on the island and had a “Welcome to the Island” party here so we got to try out a lot of the food. We loved everything we had. In the end we settled with pulled port and fish tacos. Both excellent! If you have a group going and looking for a location to throw a party this is the place to do it! They had 45 of us. We basically took over the bar for the night. The staff did a great job of making sure everyone was happy and had a full drink (the important stuff in life). Bring a permanent marker if you want your name on the wall for years to come… We stapled a koozie 3 years ago that is still going strong and on display! It is now accompanied by our Holly and Chris wedding koozie. On top of the great food and staff the owners, Jodie and Scott were awesome! They went way above just catering a party for us. A month before the wedding we flew in for a quick weekend to make sure everything was in order. Jodie was able to help arrange a flight for us at a discounted rate, and a room at Captain Morgan’s for next to nothing. And not just a room in the back of the resort; we stayed in a small one bedroom Palapa that was maybe 15 ft from the water. We wanted to have a group snorkel trip that Scott was able to set up for us. We definitely recommend this trip, well worth it! They were just so helpful for any questions or concerns we may have had. And not just questions about the party, any random concern about anything on the island they were willing to help. We truly have made lifelong friends with them!

We went here with two other couples who we're staying at our hotel and had an absolute blast. Great (strong) drinks, fun inner tubes to relax in, and amazing views. It's a little far from the center of town so make sure the person driving your golf cart isn't seeing double when they get behind the wheel. :)

Have had many good times there for sure, A great place to spend an afternoon. You may just happen on an impromptu Jam Session by someone well known or t least the band members. Great place just to hang out and watch the waves roll over the reef.
Actually I go way back to the original that blew away during Hurricane Mitch, actually we were probably the last people to have had a drink before it blew away. Good memories but the one that is there now is just as much fun. Come and set a spell you just may make some new friends.
Easy to get to by golf cart just follow the road north. You can also get there by water taxi.

The owners are amazing. Love this place, visit it every time we go there.
Have our name written on the wood and all the dates that we have been there.
Food is Great, drinks, love the watermelon one (don't know what it is called though)
Sit outside on the dock, or underneath on an inner tube, while you bucket of beer is passed down on a rope.
By boat or golf cart, always a place you want to visit on your way up North, or on your way back into town.
It's the only bar/grill, that I know of, that is actually located in the water.
We have met several friends there, new and old and always leave with fun stories.
Looking forward to seeing you all here in the next couple of weeks, save me a rum punch!!
