“Appropriately named”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is el centro for the pleasure boats. They tie up their dinghys here as the grocery store is close. Lots of sea stories. Good service. You'll only see fish on the menu if it was caught that day. Otherwise their burgers are great. They have the best selection of beer on the island

“What service??”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

As I was not a local, I was not even greeted at the bar the night I went on my own. Another night I went with some people who lived on the island, and even then the service was pretty mechanical. There were people I saw both nights who had been overserved...
It is cool to see the Tarpon under the light on the edge of the dock.

“When cliches are good”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

A typical island bar, open to the bay. The average food (menu food) leaves a little left to be desired, but anything caught fresh that day is incredible. The beer selection is great as well.

“Bartender ruins paradise!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Since we never got to the point to experience food this review only covers service. The bartender was rude - rude - rude! Our requests for drinks were greeted with sarcasm, sighs of inconvenience, unfriendly service and were super expensive nonalcoholic drinks. It's a shame too because over the years we have loved the environment and the food. It is not on our list to return any time soon. NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY!
