Stopped by both on one afternoon and another evening. Somewhat lively bar that has music on a varying schedule. Sometimes 1 to 4pm and sometimes in the evening. The schedule is posted in the bar.

This is a great place to watch sports and have a good variety of cheap beer. We bought buckets of 5 beers (mix and match) for $10.00 us dollars. The wait staff was quick and friendly. It also has great views of the water.
