I love this place for it's food, music, and just plain fun. Anything fish is great. I love the fish and chips. My daughter had catch of the day fish tacos. She was in heaven. Please make this one of your stops if you're looking to eat before or after the Conch Train or Trolley :)

We had afternoon snacks here twice. We have a small dog and sat outside under the patio cover. The staff was wonderful and the snacks were yummy.

Great food - real good wings but grab their featured hot dog. Drinks were good and staff was real friendly. A couple guys playing music had people dancing. Highly recommend.

The island featured hot dog was delicious. The beer was cold and the server was very friendly. Wide open space. Service was a little slow but it seems they were just a little under staffed

We had stopped in here for a quick drink each night on our way to Mallory Square while we were in town. I wanted to spend more time here, but we were on the move, so the one drink a night was all I could really get in. Cool little spot though, nothing crazy... just a laid back bar with... More

We sat outside with our group and everyone had apps, and a few cocktails! This spot is perfect, great music and staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend a stop here once you're on the island. :)

We went here to enjoy some music, to eat, to drink, and to meet friends. I ordered the nachos - nothing to write home about. I would skip these the next time.
