Scary folks here. Was so much fun last year. I won't be back. Really too bad. Creepy folks working and hanging around. I can't recommend this place right now. Maybe next year it will be cleaned up with new staff and normal patrons. 😞

We enjoy visiting here in the afternoons when they have a live band playing on the beach and ice cold buckets of beer on the beach.

Our party of 4 was greeted with “Español?” Which none of us speak so was followed by a sigh and menus thrown onto the table. Drinks are overpriced, we didn’t bother to stay to have any food

Awesome section of beach, excellent service by an attentive staff. Food was delicious and was reasonably priced. Entertainment was awesome too. Waiter made sure we were never waiting for a drink. Just an overall great spot and a nice place to spend a day.
