Got cheeseburgers and fries and it was great, prices good. Sweet tea was good as well. The best part, pet friendly patio area so I was able to take my mini dachshunds with me.

I had such a great time here. Liberty was an amazing bartender and made sure we were well taken care of. The music and entertainment was the best on the beach. I would definitely come back again.
