We have been dining with Stephen since he was at Rumba's, then followed him to Matthews and Rembrandt. Always know we will be greeted warmly before seated to enjoy a good, well served dinner.

Can't go wrong on Tuesday's with AYCE BBQ Ribs, good fries and perfect beach view. Ron, one of the island's best cooks, moved elsewhere but they managed to keep it up. This place is all good.

We were surprised it was so empty on a Friday night, but it was great for our group of 9 (4 little kids). The location is right against the beach/ocean but in the shade. The food was fantastic and very large portions. We got the seared tuna, lobster pasta (with a whole lobster in it) and Seafood dish. They were... More

The crab cakes are made with imitation crab. They were not good at all. The seafood soup is amazing.

Expensive, spotty wifi, average to subpar food (chain restaurant food). Location is amazing though! If you don't want to leave the beach this could work.

We were a group of 5 adults and 4 young children and the accommodations for putting us out of other people's way, in our own little section, I am sure was appreciated by all. The service was really great, with the wait staff being very accommodating to young, crying children, at times. But, the actual food was totally great, both... More
