Diverse menu. Very tasty. Can handle large groups. Personal favorites are the sandwiches and stuffed jalapenos. They are an island original that has stayed good.

Wife and I stopped for lunch. Sat outside on a nice day but had to shoo away birds. Lots of food for the buck and pretty tasty as well. Would return.
