We've eaten here many times over the years and its one of our favorites on Boca Grande, but the food quality has gone down some the last couple of years and the prices are high for what you get.

Cute spot just a couple blocks from the village, downstairs pub and patio for lunch service. Small but interesting lunch menu, excellent twist on a BLT. Very fresh, professionally presented and served. Only minor negative, service was slow, but food is worth the wait.

I would check with the restaurant about it's hours in the summer. Boca Grande has 2 seasons: Summer and "Social". :) A lot of stores have limited operating hours in the summer.
