The reason to come is the amazing view of the Bay. This restaurant & bar is right on the water and it's just breath taking at sunset! Well drinks aren't too expensive. This is a secret locals hangout. Food is alright too.

Been coming to SPI every year for over a decade and always enjoyed Palm Street Pier until this year...Something's wrong. Poor service, dirty, average food that used to be a guaranteed good meal and good time. Don't think we'll be going again...

After a long pay at the beach it was a nice place for a great sunset. Good food, but not fantastic. Rustic setting and a great view. Food was middle of the road. Not bad but many other places are better on the island.

Most of the time, we choose drinking and dining spots in tourist towns by the type of food/drink we want. But there is so much more to the experience of dining out than the items found on a menu. So, if you find yourself craving...More

Food was cooked well. Turbo Coladas were stout! Atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. We had nachos and a shrimp sampler. The stuffed shrimp could use some work but we left full and happy.
