“Great drinks, good food, friendly staff”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Located on the beach with indoor and outdoor seating. Several TVs to watch your favorite teams. Staff friendly and attentive. Customers also very friendly. Full bar with reasonably priced and made to order drinks. Food was delicious. Enjoyed grouper sandwich, crab cakes, wings, and bacon wrapped shrimp. A must visit bar!

“Younger crowd - busy, fun place”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I like the crowd here, as it's younger than the rest of the bars on the beach. It's fun and packed at night. Good bands too.

“Good Palace.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Beef nachos were great. Good food, decent prices and a good view of the beach. Good service also.

Went back later for drinks we enjoyed it so much.
