Nice location on the intracoastal. Food was what you'd expect at a bar, burgers, fried stuff, etc. Seems like a popular local place for live music, but was not there to experience it

Great location on intercostal. Live music on select nights. Walking distance for those staying at Blue Green and few other hotels. Ample parking. The food is just average and standard frozen/fried pub style foods. The main reason to go here is for the drinks and...More

We kept seeing the restaurant when crossing over the intercostal on 501 and kept saying we need to check it out. All I can say is wow. I had the fried seafood platter with shrimp and haddock. Very lightly breaded and excellent. Homemade fries were...More

We went on a Friday evening. Both had burgers. Average bar food. Ok, but not great. The burgers were obviously from frozen. But the buns were good, the fixens were done well and the fries were very good. They have a fairly good beer selection...More
