Reviewed 19 August 2014

service is wanting, food is average, but watching the skinny-clad volleyball players might make up for it

“A wait for service”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

A good place to play volleyball and have a few beers as that seems to be the priority. We stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner bite to eat and had to wait as a single waitress was handling all the inside guests along with an occasional foray to the outside courts. There were fully two waitresses and another couple of persons appearing to be waitstaff serving the courts. Our waitress was pleasant and trying to do a good job but just not enough of her to go around. The food is satisfactory but nothing to write home about. If there is volleyball going on you might be better served at another bar/restaurant.

“Left after 30 minutes of being ingnored by staff...is there staff at all??”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Passed this place on our way to the lake and it seemed really cool and fun because of the beach volleyball happening right in the back of the restaurant. On our way back from the lake we sure were hungry and decided to stop by. We walked in into what seemed to be a really cool beach theme bar...nobody at the hostess stand...NOTE it was around 4pm and it was pretty much empty!.ok we waited and waited some more and decided to just go outside and take a sit on the patio so we could watch the volleyball. Seemed like most of the customers were outside, inside the place seemed empty. We saw some staff members outside and hopelessly tried to get noticed by them the one and only girl was running around with beers for the guys sitting and watching the game, she really did not even raise her head to see if there's anyone else around. After about 20 minutes we went back into an empty resraurant and decided to sacrifice the "show" and finally eat...15 minutes more sitting at the table without EVEN WATER brought to us...sorry guys we honeslty tried harder than we should have to give you a chance...
p.s.someone who appered to be a manager on duty of some sort passed by our empty sad table and I swear heard us talking about "where the hell is everyone" just glanced at us and proceeded into the storage room..wow...customer service at it's worst! If you don't have enough staff then roll up your sleeves and help out if you want your business to work.

“Good beach food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

They only had two waitresses on duty at lunch time on a Friday. It was not nearly enough people to handle people from the Hyatt which had a convention going. We got in early and got our food fairly quickly but the rest of the people had to take theirs to go. This was after waiting an hour. The food was good enough but they really needed more people. On Sat there was a beach volleyball game going on next door which would have been interesting to watch.

“2 sand- pit volleyball courts make it original”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Great place to meet friends somewhere central and casual, with parking....but, when it's hot, the volleyball and misters outside cannot take away the giant high-rise construction project next door. It has a fun theme, the staff is nice and the food isn't bad. Would go again for the music though-- the live music is great.
