We visited Bonita Bills on a Monday night. There was live music that we thoroughly enjoyed while admiring the boats in the marina. Bring cash!! Bartender was very friendly. We didn't have dinner here, as we were looking for a bigger menu.

Order, pickup and buy your food at the bar. Cash only. Plastic chairs or stools. $1.75 for limited selection of tap beer, but bottles also available. Fun if you are with a fun crowd.
