Yes, the food is mostly fried, but it you're going to eat fried food, come here! The shrimp is some of our favourite! The turbo pinas are to die for! Love the servers here, they are so laid back. Kids are welcome, although we only go in the daytime.

Casual bar atmosphere. Tent adjacent with heaters for cooler times. Food as good or better as any casual restaurant on SPI. Plus when we were there they had a singer/musician playing. Enjoyable.

The bar's pina coloda turbo is to die for. My sister likes the wanna wanna best, but I'll take the turbo anytime, anywhere! I have never eaten there because I have only seen fried foods and can't abide fried food. I always lose weight on South Padre Island because most things are fried. BUT the bartenders are great, the drinks are great and there are the greatest assortment of people there, including a lot of locals. Very fun. Unfortunately, an old man who was always there in the afternoon for his daily beer has yet to be seen. He was turning 100 this year. Hope he's OK. Don't miss this place.

We stayed here 4 nights and enjoyed the tiki hut bar so much! Right on the beach as shown in the photos. They were even prepared for the unseasonably cold and wet weather. Will go back!

Great location...get seats that overlook the beach and ocean. Their piña coladas are thee best and make sure you get the splash of rum to top it off! French fries and u-peel-em shrimp was great too. A fun bar with great atmosphere. If weather isn't cooperating, no worries, they enclose the bar and have heat lamps and still abletoget the great views!
