Right on the beach, but with a pool. Good selection of beers and the bar food was better than expected. We had wings and a cheeseburger.

Cool place. Cheap food and great daily specials. A burger and a beer for $5.00 They have a pool in the middle surrounded by a upper deck to view the ocean. Great VALUE.
