Out of all of the places we ate at this would be low on the list. It was not very friendly, the food was just okay. Better spending money at Flying Fishbone near this place

Our first visit to this charming restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. We were the only people there when we first arrived. We were greeted by 2 lovely women who would serve as the wait staff for the evening. The ambiance was amazing. We were treated so well and they saw to every detail. Food was delicious, if a little...

We arrived at Old Man & the Sea at 6:30, the time of our reservation and we left at 10:00 very hungry. As soon as we got in one of the only 2 waitresses immediately gave our family a dirty look. We sat down at our table on the beach and they served us water (all but one of us...the... More

Old Man and the Sea has been our must visit restaurant for several years. Now, the restaurant is on the do not visit list. While the food is still good service is unorganized and we were 3 of 5 people in the entire restaurant. Reservations requested for 7:00 were confirmed for 6:30 – fine. But when we arrived, the table... More

Such a sweet little piece of paradise, this restaurant was quite an experience for our entire group. I dined at the Old Man and the Sea Restaurant with a group of about 20 co-workers. We watched the sun set and enjoyed live music to candle light. I had the surf and turf - steak was cooked perfectly and was piping... More

Let me start by saying that we never even got to eat here! We did eat here last year and thought the food was mediocre, at best. We would not have come back, except we were looking for a romantic place to celebrate a very special occasion with friends of ours. We remembered the private gazebo they have and decided... More

Wonderful experience here, especially the beachfront tables and view of the sunset on this side of the island. The food was pricey, but good. They have a private pier table for special occasions, very romantic - but the entire place has plenty of spots for quiet, private conversation and dinner.
