“Went here 2x, but no band on second time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Somethign easy you can fix is your website. Ended up calling the hotel for info on the band, since the website was fixed on June. When I called they said band would be done at 1000pm. We got there at 9:30pm and they were already wrapping up. Looks like they finished about 9:15, which was very early for Sat night during 4 July weekend.

Drinks good, but saw someone else pay $48 for 4 shots of hot shot?

WOW!!

“An Island Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This bar rocks! Good drinks, good food, good bands, good times. This place is frequented by tourists and locals alike. Kinda like a tiki hut thing going. Swim-up bar, outside seating, cool breezes and great views. Great staff and even better bartenders.

“Great food but absolutely HORRIBLE service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

I don't normally complain about service but we were only the 3rd couple at about 1:30 to sit and we ordered after waiting 10 min for anyone to show and I finally had to go find a waitress. After ordering and waiting a LONG time, they got the order wrong and she said she'd double check it and be right back. 7-10 min later they came back to see if I wanted it done right. Duh! They made me wait again for another 20+ min (it was a sandwich and fries) and still didn't have it right but now my girlfriend was done 15 min ago and waiting so I just ate what they gave me. No discount or makeup on the bill. Charged full price. I won't be back even though the food I did eat was good. They do have a great view of the beach from 4 outdoor, very tiny tables (so get there early).
