I was there on a Saturday afternoon in January with some friends. The bartender was really friendly and personably, the drinks were relatively well priced, especially compared to the rest of the area. Its a perfect little open air spot right across from the beach. I heard that they had pretty below par bathrooms but, talking to the bartender, we found out that right before we were there they upgraded them, which really showed.
Overall I had a great time here and was very comfortable the whole time. The crowd here was very diverse- all ages, tourists, locals, bikers, couples, big groups, regulars... this bar seemed to have, and welcome everyone.
I will definitely make sure I go back every time i visit Fort Lauderdale.
