Just off the main drag on Folly, this beloved watering hole lures surfers and non-surfers alike with its laid-back, rustic vibe and groovy playlist from the 1960s and early ’70s. Surfboards line the rafters, and Hendrix and Zappa make good company from their poster perches on the walls. The wraparound bar is the centerpiece, visually and socially, strung with festive white Christmas lights, with vintage surf videos looping on a big screen TV above. Rotating suds on tap include classics like Guinness and local favorites like Holy City Pluff Mud Porter. Requisite tropical stress relievers, like the popular Painkiller or muddled mint Mojito, enable you to leave your worries behind. Indulge in the Philly cheesesteaks, generous burgers, or ruby red Ahi tuna tacos with roasted corn and poblano salsa. Or just come for the relaxed, throwback vibe. Grab a PBR and head for the foosball table on the back deck, and be sure to check out the weekly lineup of live music acts. When the bartender cranks the volume on his favorite song, don’t be shy, sing along. You’ll be in good company. —Allston McCrady (Dish, Summer 2018)
