“Hidden Secret in the Heart of Jaco!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

So, we had our ladies LUNCH BUNCH at Surf Dogs this week!!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!!! $1 Frozen Daiquiris with just the right amount of booze (can get them "virgin", too) and $1 Beers!!! You can taste them to see which flavor you like the best for free and tons of choices! The food menu was diverse and yummy and the atmosphere very relaxing. Service was good and the owner, Norman Warren, was up for suggestions to make the experience better......GREAT place to chill and cool off, ENJOY!!!!

“It's always 5 o'clock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Fun atmosphere, free wi-fi, friendly hot bartenders, a foosball table, the games are always on and the drinks are reasonably priced and delicious! I popped in to surf dogs every week for three straight months, sometimes twice (or three times). There is indoor and outdoor seating available. I never did try the food, however I know they are open late for eats which is an obvious bonus. My group of friends and I had the pleasure of meeting the owner one of the times we went in and he was very pleasant and welcoming. Definitely a must try if you're in the Jaco area.

“Sunset Daiquiris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We love the Daiquiri bar at Surf Dogs. The atmosphere is really fun and relaxed and laid back. The appetizers are pretty yummy and the Daiquiris take the cake. 2x1 every day after 4pm!
