“Fun bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Popped in a couple of times during our stay at Utila. Really nice, open bar. The challenge cost $10 and for this you got 4 shots of very 'interesting' rum! It was nasty but the skid row challenge t shirt is a must have for anyone going to Utila.

“Good Pizza in Utila? YES!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were brought here by a previous owner, walked into what looked to be a dilapidated shed, complete with aluminum siding. Boy, were we surprised with great service, amazing pizza and entertainment by the locals. Simply sitting in the bar, watching the various crazy locals attempting a shot or two of Giffty and telling tales was the most entertaining part. We did not expect the quality pizza that we received, we had the Buffalo chicken and Hawaiian. I mean how good can pizza be on this small island in central America? In the end, we were fighting over the last few pieces and kicking ourselves for not ordering one to go. The rum drinks were flowing, we were gorging on pizza and shopping the various T-shirts.....Not wanting to go, but being that our boat taxi was leaving we had no choice. We braced ourselves for the tab and could not believe how reasonable the bill was. We left extra for the amazing service by the bartended (we know that is not the norm here) but felt like he deserved a little something extra for his efforts. This bar is a memory from not only the crazy patrons but also for the unexpected delight we took in devouring the pizza! You won't be disappointed!

“great hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We didn't eat, but we did go to get our t-shirts. The music and ambiance were awesome, my kind of laid-back crowd. The staff was phenomenal. The layout of the bar allows you to be inside or outside and keeps it from feeling cramped.

“Great mix of people, with good food and music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This is a must if you are on Utila. There is usually a mix of locals, mostly of the older set, but younger ones as well, and every night the tourist backpackers/divers come in. There is a decent pool table, and a good mix of 80's and 90's music, as well as classic rock.
They have a special herb soaked rum which everyone should try at least once.
The food is pretty good too. The Pizza is decent, but the calzone is fried - still tastes good, just bothers me as a New Yorker. They also have good burgers and taco bowls... people generally really like the food.
The atmosphere is that of a local bar - always a great find when you are far from home.
