Default Akwa Marina Beach Bar

Reporting in on my experience at Akwa Marina beach bar. My partner and I arrived with some friends via boat. Nice deck hand met us to assist with docking. There were hornets all over the dock that we had to dodge the short walk to the end of the dock yikes. Ordered a couple of turkey chiliís that were served cold. Seriously? The owner or manager who is from Hartís Turkey farm was assisting in the kitchen and he allowed the chili to come out cold. Come on really? His name was Eddy or Teddy or something. He looked very disheveled and not a great representation of Hartís Turkey farm. We also heard him give attitude to some people who we later learned were regulars there for years. They too were disappointed. Service was slow which was understandable for the start of the year. All in all, very disappointed. We wonít be back anytime soon nor will we be visiting Hartís Turkey farm.

I seem to remember other posts where stinging insects were an issue at Akwa.

I keep my boat at Akwa Marina and never had an issue with hornets or any other insects on the dock or beach between the dock and restaurant

You seem to have the worst luck with local restaurants. Have you considered buying a pre-made sandwich from the nearest Cumberland Farms?

He has both good luck and so-so luck according to history. I believe you call that luck, not the worst luck.

And what is wrong with a Cumbies sandwich? Try one, some are pretty good. You can pick one up locally

Thanks for your feedback. In regards to the hornets, please say something if you see a hornet to the dock hand that helped you. We actively spray what we can see.
Teddy does a great job running the beach bar and we are looking forward to an awesome season.
Yesterday was our members party, I hope some of you were able to enjoy our fireworks

Let's all have a positive enjoyable summer. This amazing place is meant to be enjoyed.

I would also like to take this opportunity to shine some light on next Saturday I hope to see some of you at this fun cause for Ready Set Connect to support children with autism.http://akwamarina.com/page/volleyball-tournament

It would appear so Outdoorsman. I agree. To be honest yes I actually have had a pre made breakfast sandwich from Cumberland Farms and theyíre really not that bad. I had several awesome experiences this past weekend which I will post about.
