We boated during the morning around Charlotte Harbor and stopped here for lunch. My friend had the Spicy Elephant and declared it phenomenal. Hubby and I split the BLT and had plenty to eat. They use smoked gouda on the BLT, which really made it delicious. The setting is more upscale than the usual marina restaurant and at lunch, people... More

How do you not stop here for lunch after a ride on the boat. The BLT is perfect and so are the Dark and Stormy's.

Arrived at 11:30 for lunch, upstairs only for dinner, but stole a corner outside table and since it was a lovely warm day, enjoyed a slight breeze. The shrimp and lobster sandwich was a study in art, and generously overstuffed, with garlic large fries as accompaniment. A glass of Sangria completed a fun time.

The Pink Elephant is a must go to for dinner when you are on the island. Just make sure you call ahead for a reservation! We did not have one, but luckily for us there was a cancellation and we were able to sit upstairs! The food was amazing, and the drinks were just as good!

Order up a Spicy Elephant from Mr T before you get seated. We ate upstairs and we're brought to our reserved table right away. The night was very busy, but the service was spot on. Our waiter Doyde was one of the warmest and inviting waiters we've had maybe ever! Everyone at the table ordered something different, and the plates... More

Needed a place to eat without a reservation. Reservations are highly recommended but we were accommodated at the last minute and feel we were simply lucky as it is in peak season in the area. The menu had a wonderful variety and our choices were absolutely delicious. If you are one who likes curry, try the Curry with Snapper and... More
