We frequently visited Hour Bar but had not been in several months. Apparently, it has changed hands and is not what it used to be. The atmosphere is great - right on the water with the cool breezes - but the food has deteriorated. I had Fish & Chips one day and it was OK - before they had the best F&C in the City. The second day I had shrimp which appeared to be frozen and was definitely overcooked. Neither day was I given tartar sauce or cocktail sauce with my dish. The first day I ordered lime juice expecting the typical Belizean version that is very similar to lemonade. I was given a large glass of pure lime juice - no dilution, no sugar. Asked for sugar and was given a shot glass of simple syrup. Didn't help. Too bitter/tart to drink.

On the positive side my husband's burger was very good and my friend's grilled chicken was great. They even accommodated her request for a different side and she had very nice steamed veggies.

Overall will no longer recommend or visit this restaurant - which is sad as it was our "go-to" place in Belize City.

The atmosphere can't be beat...shared a plate from the pig roast. Great food, way too much for two hungry travelers. Cold beer, relaxed setting, good service. It was the perfect start to a quick vacation.

Every time we're in Belize city we make it a point of stopping for drinks. The drinks are always on point and always a friendly staff Belizean style.

Been at Hour Bar a couple of times, we like the atmosphere there. Also the view of the sea is really enjoyable.
Food was somewhat average. The Shrimp Cocktail was tasteless, even if it had a sauce aside - a little too spicy for me. The fish - catch of the day was also blend, no flavors. The cream soup was good, the desert not to die for.
Service was nice though and the cocktails very good.
