When we first arrived we had lunch here and looked out onto the beach. Very nice atmosphere, service and food. We came back the next night with the kids for drinks and let the kids hangout. There was lots for them to do. The music was fun, the kids loved the foam that was happening often. It was a great... More

Large outdoor play area with a huge sand pile and kid friendly toys. Every hour they have a large bubble machine outside that blows out 5 feet high piles of bubbles! The kids had a blast. Bring extra clothes they will get wet in the bottles. Food was good. Large portions. Nachos were great.

If your looking to see scantily clothed teenage girls this is the place for you. The food was horrible and they have people dancing on tables you are supposed to eat on with shoes and bare footed which is nasty. The waiter was rude and it was so loud you could barley hear people eating right beside you.

Had a great time with friends. Planned to go to other places yet decided to skip due to the enjoyment at the hangout. Kid friendly as well. Highly recommend.

Sarah our server was great, she was quick with drinks, refills and friendly!! Food was ok, I had the Fish Tacos they were good. My son had the Cajun Steak and it was so-so. Atmosphere is great and the wait staff and supervisor were all very nice.

We ate lunch here. Food and served were great. Breeze from the ocean was cold. It sits right in the beach. Lots of fun games to play with the kids or friends. It's worth checking out. Can't wait to go back to see the bands play on the stage and play in the bubble.

Fun place. Band got rained out, outside so the "crew" did games inside where everyone was eating and it was a lot of fun. When it didn't rain the outside games were fun and entertaining.

Fun for all. During the summer they have live music. Play area for the kids. Great food and drinks. Very family friendly and fun. Outside games for all. Worth the small wait.

The kids loved the atmosphere - fun place to eat. Food was average at best . We got there before there was a wait (around 6:00 pm) by the time we left, around 8:00, there was a line out the door. We don't think it's worth the wait but if you plan to go you may want to get there... More
