Stood by the window for 10 mins waiting for someone to assist me. I had to go to the serving area to get someone to get the cashier... Not acceptable. Much needed training. Just left after the whole thing. No interest to revisit.

Stopped here for lunch on our trip. Loved the open air eating and the tables under gazebos. The jerk chicken and pork were amazing! So was the seafood soup. Eat here!
