The food here is pretty good, but one of the nice things is that it has a dance floor and live bands with 70's 80's 90's music. Not as noisy as the bars on 12th! A great evening on the water.

Beautiful location on the beach. Various types of live music depending on the night. Enjoyed a few drinks as the moon came up. Friendly staff with a diversified crowd and a comfortable relaxed atmosphere with reasonable prices.
