Almost a dive, but teeming with local color. We sat right at the bar overlooking the beach. I was impressed that they served "Island Hoppin' IPA" - because ales seem to be a rarity in the BVIs. Good fried seafood.

NIce views of the water, ok for lunch, fair service, a little over priced for what you get. We had cheeseburgers and they were pretty good. Credit card machine was down which required us to make a run to the ATM for cash.
