    Pretty expensive eats including the bar menu. However, it's in a great location and is a good spot to get a cocktail and view the beach.

    I love this bar, great food and the service is impeccable. Try the Sampler Platter, The Vietnamese chicken wings and of course the Mai Tai!

    The drinks that spill on the floor over time makes this place ideal for skanking. Bring shoes.

    Great service!!! World's best/smoked looks amazing... they showed the process when I asked about it even after saying I didn't want a 25 drink. Both mai tais on the menu are great and worth the money.

    A cocktail here watching the sunset is a must ... not so kid friendly but sometimes you just need to drag the ankle biters to something you like to do Read more

    You may have to wait but getting a table near the sand is definitely worth it. Enjoy the views facing the hotels after dark.

    Katrina G · May 18, 2012
  • John W.

    The "real mai tai" will knock you down!!! $10 a drink but a great value because they actually put alcohol in it. Girls, drink slowly!!

    John Walles · April 20, 2012
  • danzrr

    If ordering the Virgin Piña Rocks, make sure the server hears you want your drink *without* alcohol (as the name/menu suggests)!

    I asked for extra lemon wedge for my vodka soda and bartender did me one better - brought the press over and squeezed it right into drink! Great tenders :)
