A cloudy afternoon on the island so decided to catch a pre-happy hour. We sat at the bar and had the best bartender. Wish we had gotten his name. The bar itself is made from reclaimed maple from a basketball court on the island. We commented on it and our 'tender gave us the history. Nice to hear the story.... More

We stopped in for a quick beer an a bite to eat for lunch. Sat at the bar but this place is clean, friendly service. Good specials during happy hour. They have outdoor seating, inside dining. Also have a lunch menu with reasonable prices. We had the Mahi Mahi and it was very good.

We had the Mahi and blackened catfish. Both were delicious. Our son ordered the flounder that was $24.50 and not as good as the catfish for $9.99. Stick with the specials. Service was good. Busy but not packed so good was served pretty quickly. Would recommend this over several others that we tried on island.

Stopped in for lunch with the family after some time at the beach. Kids menu is a little small but the food was amazing. My husband and I satisfied our craving for crab legs😃

Fun place with great food and large portions! The fish tacos were terrific. We arrived in mid afternoon so not a long wait. Fun tee-shirts to take away as a souvenir!

Peggy and I had dinner here Friday night, our last on the island. We arrived just before 5 p.m., and just in time it turned out. The crowd started arriving shortly afterward. We started with the deep-fried crab and cheese-stuffed jalapeño, which was one pepper large enough that we were able to comfortably split it and both have enough. For... More

Very nice meal! The scallop & shrimp fettuccine was delicious. The bar staff were great, as well as, many friendly local patrons. We will definitely be back.

We took out 10 year-old twins for dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious. The staff was attentive. I would take my family here again.

Never a bad meal here. Best Calamari we've ever had. Good specials and great Monday night steak special.
