I am not an overly hard reviewer, and give many more great reviews than mediocre or poor. That being said, I really thought before going that I would be disappointed with the Soggy Dollar Bar, just because you hear a lot about it, and it doesn't look all that nice. I can say that you're not going to mistake it for your upscale downtown bar, but the atmosphere was at least charming. What surprised both my wife and I however, was the quality of the pain killer they served. I didn't really think they would be any different than any other place on the island, however after watching them make the drinks, complete with grinding fresh nutmeg in them, I can say there is a difference, and this was one of the top drinks I had while on the island even though I don't particularly care for any of the ingredients they put in them.
The setting for the bar is great, with a great swimming area and beach in front of it you can enjoy before, during, or after enjoying your drink.
I expected it to be a tourist trap that lived by reputation alone, and I was wrong. My wife and I were both glad we visited the soggy dollar and will be back again some day.
