We went there on a Saturday early afternoon while hanging out at the beach .

They had a one man band playing island style music , which was excellent for setting the "vibe" . We sat at the outside bar , and overall were pleased with the visit . Prices were reasonable, service was good.

The only downside was the food quality . We had the fish and chips. The fries were nasty greasy, and pretty limp. Fish was so so.

We will go back, as this is a neat place to hang out . We will just eat somewhere else .

Came here because of groupon deal and was impressed walking in, very modern and clean looking with a beautiful ocean front patio area. This is where the good stopped. Many of the tables outside were dirty, Service was marginal at best, had two waiters somehow, didn't have gator in stock on a Friday night! How do you run out of a main menu item on a Friday! Also my soda was hardly refilled and ended up a watered down mess.

Will not come back...like others said it may be better as just a bar

These kids are not there to work, they are there to flirt with everything and everyone causing an uncomfortable atmosphere.
After turning down 2 of the waiters failed attempts to hit on me I had to wait 25 minutes to make an order. Needless to say I wont be going back.

Be a little more professional kids!

I guess I should have read the reviews here before I bought a Groupon. It truly was not a good experience when it came to the food or the condition of the bathrooms. The fish and chips were terrible as was the calamari. Very little squid that was soft and mushy and mostly fried peppers so as not to give an ample serving. The only good thing was the lobster bisque, it was pretty good.
The bathrooms need help. I hate it when a door won't lock, just fix it already. Don't bother, there are plenty of other places.

For drinks this place is okay but literally everything else was the absolute worst in could be. Food got delivered at all different times, food was freezing cold and shrimp were delivered after everyone was done with their meals. Come here for a drink but that's it. Will not be returning anytime soon. This place will probably be out of business soon judging by the other reviews,
