Grab a bar stool along looking out at the show. There is LIVE music performed every Wednesday outside from 4pm - 8pm. Order up any drink the suits you and be sure to try their fantastic food.

Dropped in for a quick snack. My husband loved his lobster chimijanga – huge and so tasty. They make an excellent pomegranate margarita too. I wish we’d discovered this place earlier in our holiday!
