After waiting 20 minutes, watching others be seated and receive drinks....we walked out. Was never even approached except for one hostess asking if anyone had been with us yet. Our answer was No- but still noone ever came to our table. I understand staff problems...but other were sat and received drinks.More

We ate at Loco Gecko for lunch. The staff was very friendly and was very attentive. We ordered the chicken quesadilla with fries, chili cheese fries with jalapeños (husband substituted the nachos for fries) and my daughter had a hot dog with fries. So they...didn’t have a kids menu and my daughter was not a fan of the huge sliced hot dog. The chicken quesadilla was the best out of everything we ordered and the sweet tea was good. If you stay at Captain Quarters then the restaurant is right beside it so that was a plus.More

The food and service was good. Big portions. The nachos and quesadillas were really good! They closed early but I think that had to do with staff shortages maybe. I'd return.

I recieved excellent service from Ashley. I would highly recommend her as a server. She took very good of me and my wife. We will definitely be back because of her.

A lot of the time, the bars/restaurants attached to a resort hotel tend to be mediocre. My wife and I actually had a pretty good dinner here. While I just started with an iced tea, my wife had a glass of chardonnay. Ok, it was...just Barefoot, but at $5 a glass, I really can't complain. We each had the BBQ chicken Chubby Checker, which was a wrap filled with chicken and a tangy BBQ sauce. Both of us really enjoyed the wraps, even though they were a little messy (thanks to the BBQ sauce). Each sandwich came with a large side of seasoned, and tasty fries. With tip, dinner ran about $45. Service was pretty good too, so we were pretty happy.More

This place wasn’t bad. We can’t really rate the taste of the food since we only got drinks. But we ordered 2 smoothies and it was $15, a bit pricey for just a smoothie. They were okay but made with the processed juice not fresh...fruit. Good overall vibe in the restaurant though!More

After arriving in town, we were hungry. We stopped at Loco Gecko. The wait for a table inside was significantly longer than the wait for a table outside, but unfortunately, some of the tables were in the direct sunlight. Those that were shielded with umbrellas...were occupied. The food is everything that you can get in a dive bar. I had the mushroom swiss burger and got fried pickles. The burger and fried pickles were good. My friend got the personal pizza and said that it tasted like it had been frozen. The drinks are fruity with amusing names. It was nothing special but it happened to be the closest spot near our hotel.More

Waited only a few minutes to be seated. We all enjoyed our food. I must say the quesadillas were the best ones I have ever had! Also had some great drinks!! I would definitely come back here. Loved the atmosphere too.

The burgers were good, but the prices were a bit high. $12 for a personal pizza? The waiter was attentive, despite how crowded it was, which was great. The food was tasty, but I would find a cheaper place to eat
