This was my favorite restaurant on the island. Great atmosphere & everything they prepared was delicious. I think they closed in 2013. A real loss to the island.

Loved the location of this eating establishment. What a great view of the marsh from your table. Clearly a very sophisticated atomosphere. Good service & very satisfying meal. Down to dessert-Hummingbird cake!
