Foursquare Tips

  • Awesome bartender, Devon (looks like a young Ben Afleck) and good food!
  • Hostess is hot, bartender gives crappy service. Tiped her .10 cents
  • Don't be a douche and complain about Santa Cruz's premier waterfront sports bar. Come in, have a drink,. GET SOME!!
  • Wow, really slow service.
  • Buster's Vision Visits "IDEAL BAR & GRILL" on the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA! Excellent Food & Awesome Customer Service! ONE VOICE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
  • The baby back ribs were best. They melted in the mouth and fell off the bone
  • The absolute worst service ever. Had to walk out. They could not even take an order with only 8 items on the menu. Avoid if you can.
  • Fried calamari is highly recommended, was very fresh and delicious; too much as an appetizer though, didnt have any space left to try sth else :)
  • Food isn't the best. Perfect for drinks and people watching. Ocean front dining.
  • Great water
  • Had to walk out for food because the service was so bad. Came back to the bar later and had much better service. I would avoid during the day for the horrible service and limited menu.
  • We just ha an amazing meal here, excellent service and we sat outside in the sun!
  • Sunday and Monday nights special = baby back ribs for 9.95. They are great
  • Service was a little better than I expected, food was 3.5/5.
  • The mai tai's were great great but now me and my girlfriend are both sick to our stomachs.
  • Get the mahi mahi sandwich but get it blackened!!
  • Wednesday Night $12 LOBSTERS!!
  • Fish and chips....
  • Live music is good.
