This is a Great bar, but kind of hidden unless you are walking on the waterfront side of Bay St. We enjoyed the Bartender, Kaanani, who taught us how to play "Shu8t The Box" and enjoyed our drinks as well! Great atmosphere and great drinks!

If you want a great lunch, good conversation, find out where all the locals go to eat...this is your place to go. Not recommended for children unless able to eat outside. It is right on the Bayfront and on the walkway downtown.

Inexpensive drinks, friendly bartenders, fresh daily lunch specials, and $1 Jell-O shots. YES all across the board!

Just ok. We grabbed sandwiches for lunch. Nice location which is why I gave 2 stars. Food is just as good as fast food chain unfortunately. I would skip this and go to the place next door instead.

Dogs are always allowed outside at all times. Once lunch is over at 3pm, they are allowed inside as well. On Sunday's, since there is no lunch served, they are allowed inside all day as well.
