Steph the owner was always around, Chelsea the bartender was fantastic, and karaoke on Thurday nights packed the place. They have two pickup locations on the beach and the two nights we went there we just flashed our phone flashlights and waited five minutes.

Had a great time on this boat bar drinking with friends. Call them from the beach and they send over their small boat to pick you up. Was great to just sit and relax in the middle of the bay drinking. Recommended.
