This is a great spot for sunset watching. The outside patio has picnic tables and some individual chairs right off the beach usually with live music. There is an outside bar and if you only want appetizers you can order from a bar just inside the entrance and take them outside. The restaurant it's self has good views of the beach and sunset even if your inside. We found the food to be average but it's worth the visit if your on the island.

Arrived as they opened and people poured in-ate inside and it was windy and patio umbrellas would not stay up, wanted to enjoy the food.
Packed inside but was still reasonable sound level. Parking was a mess because people did not park correctly-so plan for that. Loved Pit Bull, the gentleman outside who laughed when we had to help a few people park straight and he was a wonderful man to chat with while watching the beach area after eating.
And now on to the food-service was fine, our waitress seemed on top of it but did not chat us up like she did with others which we want on vacation meals-but that was ok. You get one refill on soda which is sad for the price of it, but we dealt with that. The fish and chips and burgers were fabulous. And portion size was perfect for us.
Overall we will return more that once.
Nice little place to visit for sure.

You will not find a better location to watch the Sunset on the Gulf of Mexico!! This pub is located right next to the beach. While waiting for your table or even the sunset, enjoy the great weather and music while having a drink. Food was ok, pretty pricey, but ok. Wait staff is friendly and attentive but the parking is a nightmare. Glad I finally got there, would go back again, but perhaps stay outdoors.

We enjoyed the salmon special but the sunsets were the biggest hit! Music outside while you were waiting for your table and an outside bar. Parking is VERY tight so plan to go early or walk aways. Staff was very friendly.

Right on the beach! Perfect for watching the sunset while you're enjoying your meal. Great food and atmosphere. Service and food were great! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the parking situation.
