Humongous breakfasts. Go hungry. Will be better than you think!
Full bar and wifi available. The servers are wicked cool and the restaurant stretches all the way back to the beach from Gulf Blvd. So it's a beach bar too! Good drinks, good food, good service. What else do you want? (Oh yes, it is clean as well!)

Drinks were priced at what I expected. We ate pizza and shrimp jammers, and they were both delicious. The location is on the beach with an outdoor patio and view of the volleyball courts.

First let me say we liked this place a while back...lately tho service has been very poor. Also dropped paddy melt from menu(it was great).No longer on menu. Waited for someone to come to out table for 30 minutes. Finally left and went up front..Wife ordered Chicken. Got chicken and then brought salad..(for desert).Anyway great deck..but don't expect great service. Rather go to Jimmy B's new deck, or PCI.

This was our second time in this bar... First time was last august and everyone (all bartenders and one bar back) was rude. To their defense, the bar was very busy, but no one seemed to ever come our way. I personally asked the bar back several times if he would mind sending someone over and it seemed like a huge imposition. I think after about 3 tries we finally got served. Just about all the bartenders that night were male and they spent long amounts of time flirting with the attractive female customers and basically posing. Truthfully, it was embarrassing to watch.

This time we were greeted by a female bartender Stephanie. Stephanie was awesome; attentive to our drinks, very helpful with an order, and very welcoming personality. By contrast, the male bartenders were mostly the same crew we saw in August. Given our prior experience, we watched them closely to see if anything had changed and unfortunately it had not. This time, what we noticed most was that not one of them was smiling and it was clear that at least a couple of them didn't want to be there. The bar back was the same customer averse sad sack from last fall as well.

Verdict: If you are fortunate enough to get Stephanie as your bartender, you will be well treated. The music and atmosphere are upbeat and you can have a great time. From my 2 experiences, all I can say about the rest of the bartenders is they need some serious customer service training or new professions where they really want to be.

Safe travels and good luck!

We stopped here because it was by our hotel and we were not in the mood to drive to a restaurant after traveling all day. We were surprised as how good it was especially the onion rings. Our portions were larger than we could finish and our service was fast and efficient. If you are not looking for premium restaurant food but something better than fast food, you should be pleased with this choice.
