I'm not sure it would feel quite so much like a local hangout if it wasn't so close to the extremely touristy places along the beach. The food (a 'burger) was excellent and there are plenty of interesting decorations to keep your eyes entertained.

Started going there for lunch, but it soon became the after-work destination. The ribs are awesome, and Tisa, our bartender always wows us with her Wave runners and her friendly attitude! Awesome place!
