We booked a reservation for a group of 10 on a saturday night at 8:30pm and were quite happy that they had availability.

We went to happy hour then stayed for dinner. Great Mai Tais, appetizers, entrees and service. Did I mention we were on the beach and there was live music? This place is a 10 but get a reservation!

What could be better that watching the sun go down over A bay, toes in the sand, good drinks, good food, and family. The entertainment was excellent. And we shared on goodie jar dessert among the table. My grandson agreed that it lived up to its billing.

Had a great time. Better for snacks and drinks. Found the dinner menu a bit overpriced. Visited more than once and all the staff are fantastic. Can't beat the view and the vibe. Well worth the visit.

Great appitizers and drinks in a beautiful location to watch the sunset. Come early if you want to get a good seat. Reservations required if you want to have dinner/enjoy the sunset on their open air patio right on the beach.

Excellent atmosphere and good food. If visiting during the high season, make reservations weeks in advance if you want to watch the sunset.

Such a cool place! Tables in sand, torches to light the areas, great,fresh menu, and the drinks are creative and perfect! I'm planning to go back to watch the sunset, and I wish we would have found it earlier in our trip! A must-visit!

Great food and atmosphere! No reservations needed if you sit on the beach chair section. Beautiful sunset watching, right on the ocean. Live music every night. Perfect place to unwind.

I kind of hate to review this place because I want it all to myself. You can get so chill here that you never want to leave Drinking Mai tais, watching the ocean, say no more

Setting is terrific, food is adequate. Service was good, not great but its a beach restaurant so relax and enjoy. Drinks were good. Don't expect greatness.
