Amazing lemon ice cocktail. Food was also very tasty, especially the tuna steak. Worth a visit with a beautiful location in the harbour.

This place probably has one of the best beach locations on the entire island. It's right on Dawn Beach. They also have beach chairs and umbrellas for you to enjoy your drinks in. When it comes to drinks though, you're probably better off with a beer or a glass of wine. The cocktails are pretty ho-hum... more ice than alcohol.... More

Not the greatest beach bar, but they do make it very convenient to enjoy your drinks while you're on the beach. The wait staff will come to you, you don't have to move a muscle.

We happened upon this restaurant and it was a lucky find! The food here was great, and the drink specials were awesome. Portion sizes were good and the service was nice as well. $1 beers from 11am - 4pm was spectacular! Make sure to get there for happy hour too.

Food was decent but the server could care less. He seemed put out that he had to do anything that required effort. Nonetheless, it's easy to get to and the menu is varied and the food is fine. Also...the view is terrific!

We went here for a breakfast and a lunch. Both were very good, with good views of the beach/water and friendly service. There is ample parking if it's not too busy. If you are looking for American-style breakfasts (i.e., eggs/bacon/sausage/pancakes/etc.), then this is a great place to go. Brits might be good with it, too, except for the lack of... More

Excellent location right on the beach with parking right out front. Get the Johnny Cake egg sandwich--really good. Bread is more like a French Brioche and very light. You can also rent chairs and umbrella on Dawn Beach right in front.

Their ribs are good and the pizzas are great. The service is a bit slower than I had expected, but I guess I had not yet gotten on island time.
