Whoever owns/runs this place deserves to be commended. Every bite of every course was just delicious. Top notch service and a wonderful Caribbean vibe. We enjoyed every minute of our visit.

The space here is a little surprising, as it looks just like a bar from the street. The food was quite good, and the desserts were really notably delicious. We had key lime pie and a chocolate/amaretto mousse - yum!

When on Island - you must go here. The chowder is to die for - but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Right in town, great owners, great staff.
