Dining with a view

We went there for an earlier dinner. Wife ordered the ribs, I ordered the blacken grouper and a cream of crab soup. Both meals were very good, price was a bit much.. We paid for the awesome view. Would go back again.

Must recommend the crab-corn chowder appetizer -very well made. I... More

I was given a perfect table, with the view of Simpson Bay, without a reservation, twice, on a very busy weekend night, by the front desk host, and especially by the waitress "Carla". The seafood cuisine, the potent red wine, was above average, bordering excellent. I really like the atmosphere, once I entered the restaurant, from the outside. Sincere, quick,... More

What a lovely restaurant! We enjoyed a feast right on the water and our water Kelvin was amazing! We had lobster, kabobs, veggies, and wine in a gorgeous setting with wonderful service. We will be back on our next trip!

Our server Rohan was great--very helpful and personable--and recommended that if we were going to have fish, the red snapper was local and very fresh--we're so glad we took his recommendation. One of us had the special of the day, the other had... More
