“Cool atmosphere, but food lacking!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is more of a sit and have a few drinks place, versus a good dinner. We ordered from here, and they messed up the order completely, and it wasn't anything but average food. The person we ordered from when asking a few questions about items on the menu even mentioned they just order most stuff from Sysco and to go to XYZ place if you want XYZ!

The mudslide drink was the best thing about this place! (Food or drink wise!)

“Bamboo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is an awesome place to go. The people are the best that is staff and guest. The entertainment is for the whole family and is during the day and early evening which is very nice. The food and drinks are great as well.

“Why go anywhere else?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This place has a perfect atmosphere. Outdoor seating in the Florida Weather surrounded by bamboo of course! Low price beer with lots of choices. Live music that makes you want to get up and dance. And the food is fairly price and really quite good for a bar! A great little place on the edge of John's Pass. I will be back for sure!
