Fodor's Review

The best place to enjoy a quiet sunset margarita—or make that a rooster-rita—is at this laid-back bar and restaurant right on the beach. You can relax on the wooden deck, or at the tables right on the sand, and enjoy a romantic dinner featuring fresh fish and Tex-Mex favorites. Portions here are huge and there's free Wi-Fi, a pool table, and a big screen TV to keep you entertained. It's open 11 to 10, though it does close for private parties so you may want to call ahead.

Father Rooster Sports Bar & Grill Review

This place is exactly what you are looking for when traveling in a beach location. It is a cool spot, right on the beach with good food, good service and great frozen drinks. They have a mint margarita that is awesome!
