“Great location & view, but poor service & tricky advertising”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

We went there three times during our visit and were disappointed all three times. The first time it was not busy at all and the bartender seemed rather put out to have to wait on us and would not hardly speak to us. We didn't stay long as we didn't feel welcome. We tried again the next night with another couple, and were met with the same disdain. On third night, a group of us stopped in after seeing signs in two different places about "free shots tonight for ladies night" at the Tuna. When we first arrived, we were told that it was not time yet, so we all ordered drinks and visited. Quite a bit later after we asked again we were told that free shots weren't tonight. After voicing our displeasure, they reluctantly brought us some "free shots" that were TERRIBLE. When we left, we saw the staff out revising the "free shots" ad on the sign. The staff on each visit were not friendly or welcoming or the least bit happy to see the customers. It's too bad, because it's a great location on the beach, has a nice large outdoor area, and has the potential to be a hot spot.

“Right on the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Located right on the beach, drinks of all types are available and served by a friendly staff. This is a nice place to sit, sip a cool one, munch on a light lunch, and just watch people frolicking in the surf. You can just sit in a lounge and relax in the sun or under a palm tree and take in the atmosphere of the place. Nice!

“Awesome beach bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2011

Super fun beach bar for locals and for those visiting! We went in for a drink and stayed to have their amazing cheese dip. The bartenders were fun and helpful. Inside there is a fun sports bar with pool tables and ESPN for sports fans.

“Best seaside spot in the Village.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

Right on the water, the view is spectacular. It was raining during our first visit and the protective covering was welcome, though we could have done without the tv though I'm sure other guests were happy to be watch the games. The service was slow and the food adequate but if you're looking for a tasty fish taco and extensive drink selection while you enjoy the Carribean blue skies and sea, this is a good spot to be. They have evening entertainment some nights, but we never made it.
