Great place to enjoy a drink or a bite. Sit out on the deck, or even inside near the large open doors, and take in the beautiful view of Avila Beach and the boardwalk. Friendly staff mix great drinks and have nice selection of beers on tap and wines by the glass. Excellent bar food, especially the fish tacos and... More

Each time we went we got a very warm welcome from the staff! Everyone is very friendly and my fiancé thinks their garlic fries are even better than at dodger stadium! We were introduced to the new Jameson by the bartender. Jukebox is great but they also have live music!

Disappointed that the hotel TV cable was not carrying the Sunday football games we wanted to watch, we set out in search of the live music we could hear. We ordered wine and garlic fries and we able to watch the Bay Area football teams play while listening to the live music. Very enjoyable.

Had a great Bloody Mary and lunch at this bar/restaurant. No kids, 21 and over. Order your drinks and food at the bar. Fish tacos and calamari and chips were big helpings and delicious. No frills but worth the stop.

We eat the Nachos here every Thursday during Happy Hour (4:00 pm) after we play golf at the Avila Beach Resort across the street. You can't get better Nachos and the price is great - about $7 (no meat at this price). It's fun to sit outside and look at the ocean and people watch while eating your Nachos. My... More

We have been here several times and only for lunch. We love to sit outside and enjoy the views of the pier and the ocean. There is always a great selection of beers on tap and plenty of choices of affordable food. The menu has changed over the years and missed the flatbreads they used to have. This last trip... More
