This is an easy place to eat. You order your food, sit down, enjoy the view, food is delivered and then you enjoy your food. Large variety of seafood. Take our guests here often and everyone has always enjoyed what they ordered.

We include this on our list of places to always get a meal while staying on SGI. The food is always good and the service friendly. We had fish tacos and shrimp, with oysters to start. It was a fabulous meal as always!

If you like great oysters and want numerous choices on how they prepare them, this is an excellent option. Waterfront view!

The Parmesan oysters were very tasty. We also ate the conch fritters. Delish! Staff very welcoming. Sat upstairs. They accept dogs and give them water bowls. Such a cool stop on the bar hop.

Had been here twice previously. Never again. We walked out. Dirty tables and floors that will give you an idea of what the kitchen must look like. Owl Cafe or Hole in the Wall much better.

Definitely call before you go...or enjoy the walk to another restaurant if they are closed. It actually depends on the crowd.
