Cozy and inviting. There are specialty cocktails, great beer selection as well as wine. We had everything from whole lobster and lobster chowder to haddock and big salads. The sweet potato fries were excellent. All the seafood was fresh and delicious. Good service.

Delicious food! We shared the Old Bay fried oysters to start- beyond amazing! The twin lobster special was delicious. The toasted coconut ice cream dessert and blueberry pie were so yummy. Very friendly service. Highly recommend this place!

We always feel at home here. Happy when they open in spring and sad when they close in the fall. Beautiful spot on the island. The food is consistently good. Lobster quesadillas rock, not to mention seafood nachos which make great sharing. Burgers for non...More

This is a very casual dining experience but so yummy. The seafood nachos are amazing. The lobster quesadilla also nothing to turn your nose up at. The view is amazing.

As locals, this is our favorite restaurant. It’s located just over the Cribstone Bridge on Bailey Island. It’s very popular and there almost always is a wait but the wait is worthwhile. The servers are delightful and friendly. Food is good and there’s also lobster...More

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!
