Watch your drinks or glass! I was sitting right in front of my drink and they scooped it up!!! They will grab it up when you're looking down and use the excuse that they're worried about someone slipping "mickies". Liars! They just want you to buy another! I had to complain to management! Beware!!!

During a recent business trip to Ft. Lauderdale, I was looking for some late night entertainment with a small group of friends. We did a little research and ended up here. Definitely a dive bar by any standards but fun. Open air - which was nice for a northerner visiting in December. Friendly staff, friendly customers and the they had a live band one of the nights that we were there.

Average for some, might be very good or excellent to others.

Definitely worth a try for some fun and very good music!

Went to this little bar a few times while down on the strip. Great entertainment during the day. Pina colada are 9 bucks each, so two with a tip are going to run you 20 dollars. Didn't mind too much as the two man band was really great. They have an upstairs that opens in the evening for the younger crowd. Our daughter has been there and said it was lots of fun at night.

It is a legendary institution of the Ft. Lauderdale Strip. It was prominently featured in the 1960 film "Where the Boys Are". This is the place to go. The patrons are usually locals and tourists. They always have drink specials but i find the beer "warm" requiring a glass of ice (ugh) The place is fun ... opened aired and a great view of the ocean from the second floor. It does get wild during tourist season and the crowd varies, all ages and are enjoying themselves.

Remember it is "CASH ONLY" and the service was okay.

It is what it is: a dive bar. It's a pretty fun spot to hang out though. It's right across from the beach. On the 2nd floor you can stand out on the balcony with the ocean view. The first floor was crowded both nights we went with a live band. The bartenders are friendly but the service was pretty slow. Upstairs there was a DJ and dancing. It's definitely worth checking this place out if you visit Ft. Lauderdale. We met some really fun people here. If you're not into a dive bar sort of place, don't stop here. I didn't even realize this place had food but I would not consider eating here.
