The location of the grill is what attracted us to eat here, but it is the food that keeps us coming back. Nowhere else can you sit wih your feet in the sand, with a cocktail and food as good as this. Bongos gas everything you could want in a bar&grill. The entertainment was great and suited the location very well, and you can really get lost here and end up staying all afternoon!

We will be back!

Wow this really is a great place for lunch. Excellent food at very good prices although the beer is a little on the expensive side the view and the atmosphere make up for that. Better still is early evening just as the sun is about to go down this has t be probably the best spot on the beach.

We went there to have an after dinner drink. It was so nice just setting on the beach. Looking at the stars & moon. the service was great. they even come by and gave out shots of some kind.
I like they way the have it lite up with the lighting from the trees.
We also made it to see the sun set.

The seating is right along the beach on a deck adjacent to the hotel...some tables are actually down on the sand. The food (mainly sandwich type fare) was well prepared and delivered quickly. Servers were very attentive, prices were reasonable, and the ability to just chill while watching the ocean waves go in and out makes it a very relaxing atmosphere. Depending on the live music being played - you might enjoy it, or you might prefer the silence during "break time".

We were a bit disappointed in the food we got at lunch. It wasn't terrible, just not great. I got a Cuban sandwich and it was definitely not the best I have ever had.
