Had dinner here right on the beach with 8 friends,the food was excellent.......the pizza,the fajitas,the shrimp & their famous ribs were excellent. They had an awesome band playing from Argentina with a fab female vocalist who kept doing selfies of herself while singing...it was too funny!

Great place for lunch and some beach time. They regularly have a group playing in the afternoons so if you are on vacation and want to feel “tropical” go to Wah Wha, order a beer or a Margarita and listen to the group play some Jimmy Buffet. Unlike most beach clubs Wah Wah does not charge an entry fee. Food... More

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.

It has a larger section of beach here so you'll get more sun later on than the other couple of beach bars/restaurants. Good live music throughout the day. Reasonably cheap, cheaper than some places on 5th Avenue so well worth visiting a few times if ur down the beach.

First time here and loved it. Sat to tables on the beach for about 5 hours, drank beer and margaritas and had pizza which was delicious and cheap (2 for price of 1). Just a great atmosphere especially once the sun went down. Highly recommend.

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.

My husband, friends & I have spent some wonderful afternoons at Wah Wahs. We enjoyed the use of free loungers & umbrellas and listened to some great music, each day they feature a different group. The drinks were reasonably price, but at times it was hard to get service, even when they were busy. We enjoyed the pizza a couple... More
