Description: A cool and clean bar & grill located in the heart of downtown Bocas. We serve classic American bar food along with a full menu including both classic and modern twists on seafood. A great place to come mingle with the expats and the locals.

Great place to eat and socialize. Alot of the gringos that have moved to Bocas frequent there regularly. Food is delicious and well priced. If your staying nearby, you can buy ice there and they give you a large amount for almost nothing! Wide variety drink list and just a great place to chill and find out what's going on!!!

We had to unexpectedly leave Bocas due to a medical emergency and had to spend all day hanging around waiting for the plane. We advised to wait here and that worked perfectly. We sat right on the water for almost the whole day. They saw what we were up to and moved our bags out of the way for us. Place looked like a dive, but clearly a hangout for locals and the food we had was very good. They were a god-send.

A local hangout with good food, drinks and great views. Because it's actually a boat it rocks with the waves. You can tie you boat to the dock there as well. The sign says "wicked clean ice"

Great food, especially the calamari. Very reasonable. Bar with big screen TV. Lots of local US expats there. Friendly staff. Right on the water. Can't get any better than this!
