Review of Beach Bums - CLOSED

Reviewed 1 October 2013

We went here based on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Coco and the food was fan-freakin-tastic! We split four different dishes so we could taste a bit of everything and we had a shrimp skewer (great), calamari (super yum), onion rings (yum) and chicken wings (spicy & delish). I can't believe, when I got onto Trip Advisor just now, that there are a bunch of bad reviews? We were there for lunch so no music, just great food and a beautiful view...just perfect. The waitress was super nice an some locals came in for food and a couple sat at the bar. For just about everything for 2,500 ($5) on the menu, we were very happy with it! We're definitely going back to try more and different dishes!
FYI the sign by the road says BEACH BURMS (obviously nobody double checked it-funny)

Food is terrible, beer is skunky....need I say more? We stopped there for a bite to eat and have a cold beer. Very disappointing. Hope you never have to use the washrooms!

In search of a quick bite to eat we ended up here one night. While the clientele was interesting with lots of ink, and the location right next to the beach was attractive, the food and slow service left the experience with much to be desired. Our red snapper was so over cooked it crunched as it was on the plate. Many better choices.

This place needs to hire someone who knows how to run a kitchen. The smell of burnt deep fryer fat permeated the entire outdoor restaurant. The food, when it finally came, all tasted the same. Thats because it came from the same burned fat.
