Loved this place! Right on the beach, great rum buckets, average shore prices. Must love loud EDM, which we do. Some might find the music too loud, but we loved it.

If you like to sit and relax and have a drink on a nice "perfect ten day", this is the place to do it. It was a lovely August afternoon and the views of the ocean and beach are truly spectacular. We had eaten here in the past and the food was not bad. But it's now about the food.

We came after Labor Day so the menu was very limited. Not much for the kids. The homemade chips were strange tasting - like the oil used wasn't very fresh. The setting was nice but it would be better if the bar had its own bathroom instead of he public bathroom. The margarita I got was tiny. Still it was pleasant sitting outside looking at the ocean. The kids weren't too happy, but perhaps this is not intended to be a family place. Since the place was almost empty it was difficult to determine their target clientele.

I read the other reviews and find it hard to believe that they are talking about the same place as I am. Went there yesterday afternoon and couldn't be more disappointed if I tried. Very bad service from indifferent bartenders, incredibly loud dance music (a truly bad mix to boot) played over a terrible sound system with broken speakers, no Heinekens (this is truly nuts), and drink prices to rival NYC. Are they kidding? If this place doesn't change hands and come back to some degree of civility, it should be put on the 'avoid at all costs' list.

The balcony over looks the beach - its outdoor setting makes it live up to its name by far. the rum buckets had a little too much juice in them for me especially for $14 a lot of ice and pineapple. But the DJ was good and Taylor our server was awesome. Definitely a great place to check out - lots of diversity and a laid back atmosphere.
