This has always been a fun place. The bar scene is fantastic. Daytime means good food. Crab appetizer is the best.

Have been coming here for years & my how things change. They really want to focus on the party crowd. I love their new sushi menu, but it is disappointing that you have to go to the poolside bar to get it. Love Raw Thursday....More
