BooDad’s Powers location is decorated in a unique beach theme and no other place you’ve been. It’s your own beach smack dab in the middle of the main land. During warm weather the five Sand Pit volleyball courts are open. Grab one of the many hammocks and lounge the afternoon away with a Pina Colada under the hot sun. Maybe you want to get into a game of volleyball, or maybe you just want to try one of our excellent dishes and have a beer or two to unwind from the hard day’s work. Whatever it is, with a friendly crowd, great food and plenty of beer, you’re sure to enjoy yourself at BOODAD’S.

The American cuisine with a Cajun influence will have your lips smackin as soon as you walk into both locations. They have expanded the beach house to make room for everyone year-round and added more than enough TV’s to satisfy every sports fan. A large upper covered deck and an even bigger deck on the beach provide plenty of outdoor seating. And of course there’s the beach. Almost 2,000 tons of sand creating a 1½-acre beach consisting of five volleyball courts and some ‘kini sunnin’ areas.
