We ate there twice this week, both meals were great. We enjoyed eating outside by beach and listening to live music

I want to like this bar. The server was genuinely nice and engaged with every customer. If not for her, I'd probably be at two stars. The bar doesn't do it for me. It's location right on the beach makes it too easy to rely...More
