Great to have a nice and warm pub meal when on vacation. Great drinks and wings right on the beach with friendly staff. Check hours before you get a ride there. They closed at 6 pm

It's dirty, overpriced, yet friendly & inviting in a squalid sort of way. Great place to have a few pints. Be warned though they close at 6 PM

The food was terrible and the prices were very expensive. The portions were really small and there was some kind of mystery meat with kraft cheese slices in the over priced sandwich.

Dissapointed, over cooked calamari and very little portion for the price and you couldn't even tell that there was fish on the sandwich. Cocktails were good though.

Walked to this place to eat and had a hamburger. Strange meat. We didn't like it.Dirty dogs in the place that sat around our table and grossed us out even more. Will not return. $9 for a bad hamburger😜

We had to travel by boat to this section of beach in Panama. It is a quiet rural city the main attraction was the small festival and Woodys Bar. Nothing to exciting. It's a Canadian spot with lots of sports jersey from Canada.
