It’s gone through so many reincarnations at its same location: for decades, it was the Tacklebox, a haven for revelers who enjoyed strong drinks, cold beers and perhaps a dip into the waters below. It became Shark’s Bar for a while, then reversed to The Tacklebox.the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-3
Now, it’s The Island Tackle, and it’s back to serving good pub grub, refreshing drinks and best of all, fantastic views that never went away!the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-4
Of course I had to stop in for a quick bite and look-see, so I dragged the husband out on the promise of a good burger. Lucky for me, Island Tackle delivered!the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-12 Deliciously seasoned beef was cooked to our specifications, then served on a sesame bun with crispy fries…just a perfect bite for a Saturday night out on the water. the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-11I had the cheesy, delicious quesadilla, and of course, we washed those goods down with some cold beers.the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-9
After dinner, we even had a couple of cocktails to wind down a bit, chilling at the bar enjoying good conversation. We realized how much we were enjoying our outing, and chalked it up to the chill, relaxed ambience. the-island-tackle-tacklebox-bar-grill-6There was no loud, blaring music, and since it was a Saturday night, blessedly there was no karaoke (not my thing). This is definitely a fantastic place to chill and enjoy good food, cold drinks and gorgeous views!

There’s plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors, so hopefully you’ll join us soon!
