Stayed for a week in the nearby North Pier Ocean Villas. Our go-to place for cocktails, lunch, dinner and snacks. View from 3rd floor deck is outstanding. Very reasonable prices and friendly service.

We went for a drink midday and sat outside in the tall comfy chairs overlooking the ocean. There was music playing and it was overall a typical bar/lounge. Pool table and bar food offered also, didn't try it tho. Great prices on the beer

After a day on the beach there's nothing like a simple bar with a great view and friendly people. Before Buffett became a conglomerate, I imagine him sitting with a cold one looking at this great view and enjoying life as inspirations for his Buffett...More
