We were craving some pizza and had heard good things about this place. Was a bit far from our resort so we had to rent a golf cart, but it did not disappoint. Very good pizza! Drinks were a bit on the expensive side for...More

First, the pizza itself was very good -- it tasted just like you'd want pizza to taste, but it didn't taste like every other pizza in North America. There were interesting combinations of things to be had, too. The pizzas were good sized, and not...More

Like many other restaurants in Hopkins, the place isn't spectacular to look at, just a simple oceanfront pizza shack. We got the BBQ chicken and Veggie pizza. The BBQ chicken has carmelized onions that were unreal. I've been to so many pizza joints in the...More

When you think of a laid back beach bar, this is it. We kayaked from our resort one day and stayed for a pint. Very relaxed, everyone was super nice. We came back later that night for the local band who plays there on Thursdays....More

I don't even know where to start. Hands down some of the best pizzas I have ever had. Great service. Strong drinks. A very family friendly atmosphere.

Pizza was surprisingly good, and the cocktails were on point. Great little beach spot with several games, including sand volleyball and bean toss.

Just opened about 6 months ago - serves pizza and pasta, has a bar, sits on the beach with some volleyball and games at times, cute decor and great owners - expats from Canada. Really good pizza, nice break from the local food if you need it.
