We went here several times for sunset or a drink later in the evening. Drinks are good & reasonably priced. We did not eat much here, just an apply, but it was good. Seems to be a pretty happening spot at night for locals & tourists. Staff are very friendly & service was excellent.

Had a grilled cheese sandwiches and beers on a hot day on New Year's Eve in the afternoon. Very pleasant, fun atmosphere. Service was very good and we enjoyed the music. Great view of the ocean!

Happy Hour is 2-7PM and 2 for 1 drinks! YUM. Also, great wings! The beach is very wet so go here, grab a lawn chair and some drinks to tan/hang out on the beach!

Been to the iguana bar a couple of times now for drinks. The upstairs bar is right on the beach and offers a great a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. While they don't have a happy hour, prices are pretty reasonable (big glass of wine $70 cords).
