Fantastic service and delicious food. Wish we had found this on the first day of our trip. Delicious veggie options, especially the chili.

We met the cook on our tour of Buck Island and decided to try out his restaurant. The grilled fish sandwich was wonderful, but the Painkiller was the best. One person ordered a Painkiller and within moments, 3 more were ordered! All of this was very reasonably priced and conveniently located in downtown Christiansted.

We stumbled upon this facility seeking refuge from a storm that suddenly rolled in and we continued to return several times afterwards as a result of the excellent food and charm of Tom, the owner. Even though the power was out in the city, Tom didn't blink an eye and he and his brilliant chef served up tremendous food to... More

Great food, Tom was the greatest, made us feel as though we were best friends with his personality and service. The food was outstanding at a very great price. Ordered the steak, got a salad, steak covered in fried onions, and mashed potatoes. Everywhere else we had dined the salad was not included and was an extra $8-$10. Would repeat... More

My husband and I stopped by for our last dinner on the island. We were pleased with everything!! The conch was delicious, as was the fisherman's platter and the steak! Tom, the owner/bartender/server went above and beyond typical hospitality service! He came and spoke with my husband and I multiple times throughout our meal!

Stumbled across this place while looking for someplace to eat in Christiansted. We were not sure it was open until we saw the bartended in the window waving us in. I had a very good Jambalaya, although the shrimp seemed to be a tad undercooked. My wife has a turkey sandwich with fries that was great. My understanding is that... More

We went here on the suggestion of Mary at Hotel on the Cay and glad we did. Its right off the board walk in Christiansted, right by the government building. This is a small restaurant with not that many tables so we ate at the bar. The owner, Tom, runs the place, so he was server, bartender & everything else... More
