This is a combination of a daiquir place and a full service bar, with a kicker, they serve food. They have an awesome bar menu and the people there are very nice to deal with. I love the fact that they have outside dining area. Great place to spend an evening.

Hate is a word...but it isn't a strong word when it comes to how i felt about the shrimp po boy i ate here. I hate wasting time talking about how dry and bad it was.
