We went on a Friday morning and the music was so loud we could not hear ourselves speak. In addition, the service was terrible. We felt like we were disturbing the waitress, by asking for drinks. The food was terrible. Tasteless and it made me feel queasy. Lastly, the washroom was dirty and not a place I would like to re-visit. The view and location on the beach was great. They just need to renovate and train their staff.

Not everyone will enjoy the completely outdoor setting with worn wooden booths and tables, but my husband and I love it here. They offer a great selection of local craft beers and some different wines, They had great food and still have a tasty list of sandwiches, what I think are the best conch fritters in town, and fresh fish tacos. (They had to cut their menu back after Hurricane Irma in Sept '17 until they can affect repairs.) There's a nice little corner for the array of great live music that they have on weekends, and there's even a little room for dancing between the musicians and the main bar.

It's not part of the Broadwalk which is rather commercialized. Diana Beach Bar, Grill and Music sits in the middle of a tiny park area that's both pet and kid friendly, and it's sandwiched between the Hollywood Dog Beach to the south and the Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park to the north. The only other establishment nearby is the QuarterDeck restaurant at the base of the Dania Beach Pier. (I prefer the food and the selection of beers at Dania Beach Bar than the QuarterDeck.) It's a great place to people watch as they come back from swimming and snorkeling as the access to the beach is limited because of the hedges that separate it from the parking area.

It's one of my favorite dives in the area, and the crowd there is non-pretentious. There are about half a dozen tables under cover, and the seating in the front with a view of the ocean is (mostly) covered by umbrellas that are better for protection from the sun than from the rain. (Most Floridians don't mind that very brief and light shower that rolls through about once a day.)

Parking is pre-paid, but make sure that you purchase enough time so that you don't forget. (I often see people running up to their car just as someone gives them a ticket.) Despite that, note that the parking rate is cheaper there than in Hollywood.

Shabby chic beach shack, a bit pricey but I guess it's all about convenient location. The fish tacos were tasty and the coconut onion rings were crispy! Our waitress Katie was attentive and nice. Sadly they were out of gator bites and conch fritters, which was the whole reason we chose Dania beach for the day.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. Sat outside at picnic table away from the bar side. Band was playing and they were good - great vibe!

Our server was great. The food was pretty good. The flies were a big problem when trying to eat. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. Could use some updating. Can't beat view and live music!
