This is a rustic bar/restaurant on Sandy Beach. Picked it because of all the signs in the area. Not disappointing at all. The shrimp is fabulous and the fish (flounder) tacos had amazing amounts of fish in them. Again the shrimp is to die for.

We had a late lunch at Wrecked on the Reef mid-week and it was quiet, but you just knew it was the place to party on the beach on the weekends! Great facility for large crowds and live music! The food was service was excellent. Can't wait to try a night time visit on our next trip!

Was in there to watch the Cleveland and Toronto series. A little overpriced but was still fun. Good food and service.

This is a popular watering hole for tourists which is right on the beach near where the new cruise ship port is being built. The drinks were great and the food plentiful.

This place was probably the biggest disappointment of our long weekend In Puerto Penasco. We were not familiar with food places and I did not read the reviews well (my mistake) so I had to learn the hard way. My husband two teenage daughters and I ventured here for dinner on a Friday evening. Just the drive to get here... More

I'm sorry to disappoint you but Wrecked does not offer a free breakfast option. We do have a breakfast special for $9.00 USD that will get you a bloody mary for just $2.00... could that be what you had? More

Always a favorite!!! We went here several times during our stay in Mexico. We were able to watch a couple of the Cubs games and enjoy the patio. One night was very busy, but they were upfront and honest that we could expect a lengthy wait for,our food. That was appreciated. The dirty monkey (adult beverage) is delicious!!!!!! Wish I... More

Based on previous reviews and the killer beach location our family (all adults) decided to try Wrecked for an early dinner. The loud music competed with the loud NFL game echoing throughout the restaurant. Food was average, and extremely overpriced for RP. The small narrow plank tables became filled with drinks and food, and we were juggling to find space.... More

Good service, ample drinks, a fun place to take pics and buy cool t-shirts (they are very expensive so be aware). The 4 of us enjoyed this stop. Large inside and they have live music on the weekends.
