Kirk, Thank you for your review! Glad you were able to experience the colors ceremony on the deck. It doesn't get much more "Roche Harbor" than that! The calamari is awesome too we'd have to agree. Looking forward to hosting you again on your next...More

No reservations, cafe-style eatery with outdoor terrace and inner bar and dining area. Lovely views over Roche Harbour but not much ambiance otherwise. Prompt service, average food rather bland. Highlight was the dusk ceremony of lowering the American flag.

Tasty food-, couldn't ask for better views but service was slow. Seemed like they were understaffed for the number of guests.

If memory serves me correctly there were very few vegetarian entrees. The only one I remember is the Caesar Salad.

What better way to spend a summer afternoon than relaxing in this over-the-water restaurant dining on coastal-casual cuisine and sipping flavorful cocktails? The deck sits over harbor, offering diners the only sunset view over water on the island. Fresh salads, creative grill sandwiches and famous BBQ ribs are menu favorites.
