THE LOCALE | Patio's Tiki Bar & Grill
THE LOWDOWN | When the weather is nice, there's no better place to be than outside. That's why Patio's Tiki Bar & Grill, with its huge outdoor patio with a great view of the Intracoastal Waterway in Little River, is an ideal spot for happy hour.
Whether you're waiting for a casino boat ride, looking for live entertainment, or just hoping to sit outside, Patio's Tiki Bar & Grill is a laid back joint that offers food and drink specials. You'll find a mix of locals and tourists and regulars who come everyday. There are even beer coozies reserved for regulars who come often enough.
This waterfront locale has plenty of outdoor seating on the large wooden deck that looks over the Intracoastal Waterway. Pull up a chair to the waterfront ledge, snag a picnic table, or belly up to the bar. Wherever you sit, you'll be able to hear live music coming from the stage during happy hour. Performers play a variety of music, from beach music to country to Southern Rock and more. You can entertain, too, by singing karaoke on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Happy hour runs from 4p.m. - 7 p.m. weekdays. Drink specials include $2.25 domestic beers, $3.25 imports, $4 wines and $2 cans. Actually, you can always get $2 Budweiser and Bud Light cans and $3 vodkas - those deals are all day, everyday. Check out ladies night on Wednesdays and corn hole tournaments on Mondays.
