The local jazz club (a mix of Crucians and expats) were playing there on Sunday afternoon and evening. We were in Christiansted and decided to drop by. The jazz in not professional (not... read more

The menu seemed somewhat limited by island standards. Most of it was basic pub food - wraps and burgers. Of note was the one item that differed - coconut curry was offered with either chicken or fresh seafood. I had fresh wahoo prepared this way and it was quite good. "Fries" were seasoned wedges and were also tasty.

We were here for breakfast and the weather and breeze were fabulous. The breeze was blowing in from the doors. The new location is so much better than the previous even though you have to be buzzed through the condo complex (Mill Harbour) gates. I can never get enough of looking out onto the water. The service was basically good... More

Seinie, the owner of the restaurant is amazing. Everything we had, from nachos and tacos to lobster and steak was excellent and the portions were huge. Prices here are moderate compared to other restaurants we experienced on the island. The place was open air, right by the pool and beach at Mill Harbor. We were staying in the adjacent complex...

My boyfriend liked coming here back in the day when this spot was hot. He's taken me here 3 times, and today was the last time. The restaurant is located in a prime waterfront spot with strong winds blowing through. Even though this cools down the food pretty fast, I like the strong breeze. The two waitresses I had did...
