Awesome view of the water from your table! Food was very good, just wish I got more shrimp for the price. Overall the food and my pineapple drink were very good, but just a bit high priced for lunch.

A great meal in a relaxed atmosphere with great service! We were pleased to be quickly accommodated even though we were a large group with several small children.Service was quick and attentive, and the food was excellent! Definitely a restaurant to return to again and again!

Ate at this restaurant last evening. The manager was at the hostess station and was courteous both then and when he later came to see if dinner was to our liking. I had the fish trip. Great idea, three different fresh fish, prepared three different ways. Excellent portion size. My wife wanted the swordfish, alas our server, Heather, said that... More

Really excellent ambience, service, selection, drinks and entrees. But.. Caesar salad was a nice piece of romaine drenched in bottled Caesar dressing. A 10 buck salad in a nice restaurant should do better. Ditto for the dessert, kinda blah. Go for the entrees etc. skip the salad and dessert.

Great spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Full bar with great food and wonderful service, not forgetting a great view of the bay. Restaurant has the capacity for private parties also, which is nice to know.

We had dinner at this restaurant during our stay on the island. The food was excellent with very large portions. Very reasonable prices. The wait staff that we had; Kim, was very helpful, nice and excellent in her overall service. We would have returned but because of time constraints was not able too.

We had lunch with a bunch of friends (31 ppl) and had a great experience. Food was yummy and our server, Shawna was great. They have their own pastry chef and the desserts are delish. My husband and I eat there quite often and have never had a bad experience. Sam, the manager, is always friendly and welcoming. Oh and... More
