....spent at El Galleon, overlooking the main street, beach and ocean drinking cocktails - just perfect. Great menu for both food and drinks, service friendly and efficient but not intrusive. Wonderful cocktails!

We stopped here one evening for drinks and karaoke. I was jet lagged and they were able to make me an Irish coffee, even after 9pm! The only sad part is karaoke ended at 11pm on Friday night and we didn’t get to sing!

Went here twice on a two night stay! You must try to the luau ribs with the onion rings. They are so good. Staff was awesome and meals delivered timely. Music and ambience were cool. Highly recommend!
