“Only visited the restaurant”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Great location, right on the beach. The food was good, fried shrimp basket( big shrimp hand breaded), best I've had. The drinks are good, prices are ok, on the water who's complaining Shrimp basket and large Bloody Mary was $23.

“Excellent place to Eat and Drink”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Wow the staff is great and friendly and the live entertainment is amazing. We all laugh and singed as the entertainer was great. Love the margaritas and food, you got to try the burgers and fish and shrimp baskets.

“Fun Beach Bar”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I Wanna-Wanna again!
Celebrated the end of a great day with my son on his 21st birthday at the Wanna-Wanna. This is a fine little beach bar with everything you need... cold drinks, plenty of chairs, friendly bar-tenders, and a lively volleyball game going on right out back.
The bar is one of the few on the island where you can walk directly off the sand and right inside without touching a sidewalk.
Friday night they had a band playing a good mix of cover tunes, not too loud but still rocking!
If you go, be sure to have one (or two) of their signature drinks, The Wanna-Wanna! It's a fruit drink with lots of rum. Ask for a STRONG one... you won't need the second!
Food is standard bar fare, nothing bad.

Small bar with a relaxed casual friendly feel. Great location right on the beach. We enjoyed a drink here and talking to some weekend residents.
