“Great place for live music, drinks, food, any time of day. Located just a block away! Dine on the outside patio overlooking the canal. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is a local favorite. (Food is great, however, service can be slower, but worth it!) ”

“Cool place to go for a few drinks. Bartenders are friendly and funny. The bar connected to it - Pleasure Island Tavern (The P.I.T.) -- is a place where only locals hang out. Sometimes, you can run into the Mayor of CB”
