Visited the Wah Wah beach bar the 3rd week of February'18. We were a group of 18 people. Everyone in the group agreed that Wah Wah beach bar was more fun than Senor Frogs. Beer costs were 1/2 the price and Wah Wah had live...More

Scary folks here. Was so much fun last year. I won't be back. Really too bad. Creepy folks working and hanging around. I can't recommend this place right now. Maybe next year it will be cleaned up with new staff and normal patrons. 😞

We enjoy visiting here in the afternoons when they have a live band playing on the beach and ice cold buckets of beer on the beach.

Our party of 4 was greeted with “Español?” Which none of us speak so was followed by a sigh and menus thrown onto the table. Drinks are overpriced, we didn’t bother to stay to have any food

Awesome section of beach, excellent service by an attentive staff. Food was delicious and was reasonably priced. Entertainment was awesome too. Waiter made sure we were never waiting for a drink. Just an overall great spot and a nice place to spend a day.

A great way to enjoy an afternoon on the beach. Food was good and so was the service. Not 5 star, but still pretty fantastic for a snack and a lounge chair. Don’t get wrangled by the neighboring restaurant, make sure you are at Wah-Wah’s.
