Apparently they have a food truck sometimes but not the night we went. That would have been great! The drinks are bit different, not rum based so slightly different tasting. Plenty of beers to choose from though. And the ambience was amazing. We had a wonderful time and will definitely go again!

Drinks were great, server was very nice. Food service was slow but I assume this was due to COVID-19 restrictions. Overall great fun experience.

We didn’t have any food. I wish you had true drinks with alcohol. I hope you’re trying to get a liquor license, that would make us come back.

It's realy a hidden cove. Loved the ambience, staff were courteous. The cocktails were mediocre. I recommend if you are not peculiar about cocktails.
