My husband and I loved this beach bar. Beautiful views with seats in the sand. Cold beer on ice and friendly staff. We did not eat here, but enjoyed many of our favorite beverages at the bar while enjoying the sunset. I can't wait to go back :) .

Located directly on the beach the Cottage Bar and Gulf shore Grill has seating inside, outside and directly on the beach. I got to enjoy the view while eating lunch. I had the grouper sandwich which was good, but could have been better. Service was okay and nothing special. It is right next to the Lani Kai Resort, so sometimes... More

The lettuce was white (a sign that it is old) the cashews were tiny and tasteless. The chicken breast was actually pretty good. But overall, the salad was inedible yet cost... More

Walked into this dump of a place thinking it might be a good place for a drink as I was walking down the beach. Orders one beer, paid 5 dollars for it then tipped the bartender. As I was walking out, the bartender looked at me and said, "Not gonna tip? I love working for free" then went on to... More

We started at the Beached Whale where we always used to go. They no longer have live music bands and are more focused on food. The Cottage was recommended by our Beached Whale server for the fact that we were looking for live music and the tip was great. We absolutely loved the bar, band and atmosphere right on the... More
