Name says it all "bar & grill" Beach front, open air tiki hut bar with limited menu does not make this a restaurant. No indoor seating. The burger was good but took forever to get. Two beers & a burger for $17.00. Rude bartender. Go @ night for drinks & live music.

I'm generally not a fan of fried food, but I was persuaded to try the shrimp and am glad I did. Hand breaded, well-seasoned, and large. I'd put their shrimp up against anyone's on the Island. And the frozen margaritas are excellent as well.

We had a great time at Wanna Wanna! They had a great laid back feel, lots of people hanging out, live music, right on the beach! That was our first impression...yay a fun place that's family friendly! I came here just for the pina coladas and was NOT disappointed! Their famous pina colada was yum yum! It has a floater on top and was just perfect! My husband ordered a wanna-wanna (their other signature drink) and it was good too! We snacked on the fried shrimp basket and loved both the fried shrimp (huge shrimp by the way) and their fries. Perfectly fried, crispy, and fresh tasting. Nice little umbrella tables - plenty of places to sit and watch the ocean, people, music, etc. Stop by wanna wannaA!

Wanna-Wanna's is a little hard to find but worth the search. Great place to people watch and the food is good at a good value. Try the pIna colada.

Love live music, the Bongo Dogs are a band to see, great outdoor atmosphere, right on the beach, food is nothing special but does not cost much either. Fountain drinks are awful, would not recommend.... Still, with atmosphere like Wanna Wanna's, it is a definite place to be when on the island :)
