We went here for dinner and drinks after a long day of travel. The service was great, location was excellent and atmosphere was friendly. The food was delicious and priced very reasonably. I will go back again.

Nice location on the intracoastal. Food was what you'd expect at a bar, burgers, fried stuff, etc. Seems like a popular local place for live music, but was not there to experience it
