Great bar! Chips and queso were awesome. We came here every night. We were there for taco Tuesday and they were good too. Service was good all nights even the busy night.

Right on the beach, but with a pool. Good selection of beers and the bar food was better than expected. We had wings and a cheeseburger.

Cool place. Cheap food and great daily specials. A burger and a beer for $5.00 They have a pool in the middle surrounded by a upper deck to view the ocean. Great VALUE.
