“Bar with good people watching + live music out back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The pizza is good. The sand belt races are hilarious. I'm not a bar person so this is a good place for me because you can walk right thru to the back and sit outside on and listen to a band in their backyard. They have to stop playing about 10:00 since it's outside. Good place for people watching since it's a local hang out. Definately a must do if you are going out in Port A.

“Bar with Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is a quirky beach bar that just happens to serve great pizza. I went early in the evening for pick up but I bet it is a great late night bar!

“Sanbelt races”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This place is old and has no a/c but,walk out back and there is a beautiful backyard where they often have bands and , or those crazy sandbelt races. The pizza is good and hot and the beer is cold what more do you want. A great place to spend a weekend afternoon.

“Go only on Saturday for the Sand Belt races!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Great place for something different. Go on Saturday around 3:30-4:00 for some fun. Go to the outside (out back). Walk through the bar to the back/outside. Yes you can bring your kids to watch. It is fun for everyone and it is free to watch. You can order drinks and pizza while waiting for the races to begin. Get there early for a good seat or at least a seat in the shade. Very unusual.....totally Texas! Great to do at the beach for something different. You can also park in the back so you do not have to walk through the bar. They have an outside bar for ordering drinks too. Enjoy the races!

“Off the wall but good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I went in to check it out because a local had told me the pizza was good and the two drunks at the bar and the not so nice bar tender kind of scared me off with a family. We got hungry after a fishing trip so i decided to go and get a pizza to go and I am glad i did. This time the guy behind the bar was really nice, we was a professional runner and he made an awesome pizza and was just an all around cool guy. Its mostly a local dive and not really a place for kids but the pizza is good and the breeze is nice.
