Pretty typical food and prices. Good varied menu. Right on the beach. 2 for 1 happy hour drinks. Decent monitors. Waiters pretty much disappeared near the end of happy hour so we only got 1 round of drinks at our table.

Happy Hour at Nogui's is 4:30 - 5:30. Great service, drinks and prices! 2x1!! Love everything about Nogui's and it is perfectly situated on the beach. One drawback. Happy Hour ends before sunset 😥 . Perhaps Nogui's could extend their Happy Hour 😀.

Really great food! Delicious Red Snapper! Wonderful place for cocktails and dinner to watch the sunset and some of the local talent performing along the beach. Fairly priced.

The location was great and staff was superb, but food was very bland. There were a lot of "no see um flies" which bit the heck out of all four of us. Not sure I would return

If you can yes, sometimes get pretty full; if not get there not too late in the afternoon to get a nice table (bring your Off, sunset can bring mosquitoes).
