Food was not bad, service was terrible. Not sure if our server, Ali was having a bad day or what, but she was not friendly or polite in any way. The view of the water was pretty awesome though!More

Great food at a good price in a large Tiki Bar, had the catch of the day and it was very good. The bar is also good to sit and watch the sun go.

The Happy hour is great. I believe it's 4-7 which is later than most. The serving size is small but for $5 you can't beat it. The bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly. There was also great live music. Check it out, well worth it.
