Nice grilled lobster but watch out with a food allergy!

Nice location, friendly staff. I can recommend the grilled lobster, it was very good. I have a food allergy and they were not able to handle this properly. I'm lactose-intolerant (no milk, dairy, etc) which I mentioned when I ordered. After ordering they broad us some bread with melted garlic... read more

A great open air restaurant on the beach with great seafood options, especially the Red Snapper, good wines at reasonable prices, and friendly, unrushed service. We had three dinners here during the week when the restaurant is called Daniel's By the Sea.

The food was very expensive for the quality. It was right on the beach, and you could lie on beach chairs and get drinks, but the beach was small for the island. It's an ok place, but there are definitely much better places to go.

We had lunch at Mr Busby's and it was very good. The sceanery was very relaxing overlooking the ocean. Prices are moderate but they have anything you want from pizza to your lunch time favorites.

This is our second stay at Oyster Pond, and once again Mr Busbys/Daniels by the Sea is one of our favorite places! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and the view is amazing....on the beach, the waves and palm tress are a perfect tropical setting. The food is great! The serve seafood and Italian. The crab/shrimp cocktail is my favorite!... More

BBB has a great location, great views and a very reed atmosphere. The food was average. The pizza was good not great. Not a bad meal but far from excellent and a bit overpriced. I would characterize their dinner menu as Italian .
