We only took advantage of this place once. The food was good, but not a large menu. Nice selection of drinks.

Great place for a lite meal or snack and a drink by the pool. Wonderful view of the pier. Not bad prices for drinks.

I've ordered a tropic drink and a chicken sandwich. My drink was served in a plastic cup. After 50 mins I asked the waitress about my sandwich and shortly I was feed up waiting for it. Check please I won't be back.

Since we were staying at the King Kam Courtyard we decided to try this place for dinner. I ordered a Caesar salad & hubby had a cheeseburger....salad was limp, tasteless & no hint of Caesar dressing. Hubby's burger was thin, tasteless. The beer he originally ordered was 'out'. Pricy place for less than adequate food...didn't go back.

We stayed at the King Kam hotel, so this bar/restaurant was very convenient for us. It is pool-side, so there will be people swimming very close by, but that never bothered us. They serve good drinks and food, and the service was great even though we came at the last possible minute before the kitchen closed. We love staying at... More

If you are sitting anywhere, other than bellied right up to the bar, the service is super slow...we waited for half an hour for drink delivery one night. The drinks are pretty good, and they have some fun cocktails unique to the bar. The bar food menu is also pretty good.

This bar is for guests of the hotel only. It was pleasant, but unexceptional. Service was slow, food was only OK with small portions.

Sat with my guests,on Valentine's Day ,waiting for a server so long that I had to walk to the bar to ask for a server once and then 10 minutes later again,finally left for a nearby restaurant for quick and reliable service.....we waited well over half an hour before we left Billfish.....

Stopped in to have pupus and drinks. Both types of wine we ordered were nasty. Sickeningly sweet. The fried calamary was like fish sticks. Fried from frozen. The ribeye was very good. Service was o.k.. Priced too high for the quality.

It was a pleasant pool bar alongside the pool as you might expect and served reasonably good snacks and drinks at a reasonable price. Service was fine but the place is a little dated and drab and could be upgraded for a better experience.
