Very nice, peaceful place. Tables under cover and on the lawn. Everything is made from scratch. Smoothies were very good and people seemed to be enjoying more substantial fare. Pretty extensive menu. Follow your mapping software & don't mistake it for other nearby places.

Passed this place many times and never took it seriously, that’s until I read the TA reviews. If cruising around the BI try it. I had a spinach wrap with lightly breaded ono. More fish in there than some dinners. Came with slaw and several...More

The last time I was there it was still for sale. (3 weeks ago) Best to call them. The ladies said even if it sold they would be open and they would still be working there. No problem. Aloha, Ron
