Hi TnT, Due to our popularity and our small size (12 tables) our wait time can grow quickly when a few parties show up all at once. We do our best to estimate wait times. We hope you will visit us again in the future.

Yes you can eat at the Bar next Saturday. I would recommend that you get there before 7 p.m 6 or so would be a great time to get there. There's not that many people on the Island at this time
