Stop in for a few drinks in plastic cups. Enjoy the bar river and play with some boats. Just dont take the place too seriously, that's really not what they are about

Stopped here for lunch, we were a little uncertain after seeing the menu but it turned out to be excellent bar food. They have a great little location and make amazing pina coldas I would recommend stopping in.

This used to be our favorite beach bar & we told anyone who would listen. We have also brought many friends & family over the years. We would regularly meet with 2-8 pp to have drinks & watch our fave NFL teams. We went for every Super Bowl & the Chili Cook Off. Three of us have entered our Chilis,... More

This is an odd mix of beach bar but, and maybe I wasn't concentrating, but it seemed like you needed to get to beach via a gate with no food on site. But they have an arrangement next door to get food to you. Strange but it somehow works. It can be easy to miss the entrance from the road,... More

Very nice, very casual, beach side bar! Nice selection of beers and drinks. Food apparently has to be brought in (free delivery) from a nearby restaurant. One breezeway bar area with winding 'river' running around the bar top. A second open air beach view bar area with a sun deck over the top of it and adjoining pool table/foosball area.... More

Great location on the beach but a metal gated entry off the beach ruins the atmosphere. No food, just alcohol. Poor service and dirty inside. Poorly managed business that unfortunately occupies a great piece of real estate.

Very casual beach bar, large, open. No walls blocking view of ocean. BBQ pit on site. Private beach as well offering corn hole, and several volleyball nets to enjoy. Just a casual, fun place to have a beer and enjoy the beach!

The sign is hidden so look closely! Large selection with friendly staff. The bar has a river that runs right through it where you can send a little rubber duck on down the bar. The attached private beach is great as well with bags and beach volleyball.
