I was looking for a laid-back place with reasonable prices and this place delivers. I've always come here when vacationing with friends for the bar and music but they've also got the best food on the beach. The Rockfish sandwich was out of this world....More

Eight of us ate here on Saturday night, May 13th. The food was good. Decent beer menu. The service was good. The band was very loud, but most people seemed to enjoy it. No complaints.

We came to the pier to grab a few drinks and enjoy the sunset. There was a live band and amazing views! There is not a full bar- they only serve beer and wine. I had a margarita made with saki- it was very interesting!...More
