Good specials (wahoo) and good basic sushi (tuna and spicy tuna). Very casual atmosphere. Parking is difficult; I recommend parking behind the movie screen.

We stayed above Pool Bar and had a great time going down and enjoying the sushi and atmosphere. Timmons even came up and helped us prepare some blackfin we had caught ourselves. Would definitely visit while in Rincon.

Went last night. Fun, laid back place. My husband and I had dinner at the outdoor bar, which had a great view of the big screen surfer videos. Everyone was really friendly and the staff gave us some great reccomendations for sashimi and rolls.

Pool Bar Sushi is a landmark in Rincon with its tropical, unique atmosphere and fresh sushi with cold local beers. Surf flicks play on a giant screen above the pool surrounded with tables to eat and drink.
