As they said, great nachos & good drinks. Best view at the docks in Belize City. Excellent service. Credit cards welcome. A cute little local place with lots of local color. Convenient to the tourist shops and the gates out to town.

Cool little bar on the beach in Belize. Tasty food and good drinks. You gotta try the local beer too.

So glad you stopped in. Yes the local beer is great, and for over 15 years we have been running the same special, 2 for $5.00 Belikins. We think everyone should give it a try. Hope you come on back to Belize and stop in again. Thanks for your kind words. Laura More

Great spot for a drink or meal. Bar is in great location where the cruise ship tenders drop off and pick up passengers from. Restaurant was packed with good bar tenders and good music. Would return if ever in Belize.

Overall it was a good experience. It is one of the first places you see while getting off the tender from the cruise ship. We had the Nachos and a Bucket of beer. (6) Belikin Beers. (Dark and Amber) The nachos were fresh and tasty.

Thanks so much. I will be sure to pass on your review to the staff. Not everyone appreciates hard working employees. I sure do, and I know its especially difficult when they get super busy, but they keep smiling and hustling through. Thanks again, and hope to see you soon. Laura More

Outdoor, although covered, local spot for food and drinks. I had the pulled pork sliders and they were okay. Service was adequate and prices were not outrages. I"d like to go back and try some of the other things on the menu.

Hi Jeff: Thanks for stopping in. Yes I hope you make it back and try some other items. Everything is made fresh and to order, and the fish / lobster / conch is delivered every day. Try the Ceviche, a local favorite. See you again, Laura More

I stopped here for a cold beer and got it! Best deal is the bucket if you are with others, the draft was $5 for a pint, but the 2 bottles for $5 would be a better deal.

Hi Al: Yes, we do offer great deal on the beers. Believe it or not, we are not offered any deals on draft, so we try to continue to offer some of the best deals on beer that we can. Hope you stop on back. Laura More
