Nice restaurant at the beach. The waitress is kind and they serve local dishes. There is a lot of people eating there, maybe from the cruises and excursions. We went to Valley Church beach and decided to eat there some chicken wings and lobster.

Hi Jack, We made it through without any damage to the buildings. The landscape took a big hit so we are working on getting it back together. Thanks for your concern. Neil
