When I bring my friends and family down, it's not a trip without a delicious lunch at gramma Dots. Always get to see a happy face and to know that my meal will be great! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Grandma Dots is the first place we always go when we arrive on-island. Lunch or dinner, the menu has too many excellent selections to choose from. Try the mesquite grouper sandwich, the fabulous tuna melt, or the bleu cheese burger, my favorites. And the staff...More
