A great place to eat before or after going to the Island Players. Very friendly staff, great ambiance and great food. What more can you ask for? My next visit will be in February as I have to travel from the UK. We always choose to sit outside so we can people watch

After driving around for an hour, asking several locals who directed us t to the address listed on the internet, we finally asked someone at the ice cream shop next door. After googling it, he discovered that it was replaced by Harry's, which basically serves bar food. We were very disappointed.

Close to our rental and just like the title. Saturday night was full of great live music, good eats, and friendly locals! Had the Black and Blue salad, Sliders, and grilled shrimp appraiser all were excellent and affordably priced. Live Music, Live Music, Live Music!!!!!!

We had the Bison burger & fries which were AWESOME AGAIN!!!! The onion rings & spicy Gator Bites were very good also. Great place to call ahead for pick up order at the end of a busy day.

Eight travellers had a really great night in this bar. Food and service were very good only to be topped by Doug Bidwell the Night's Entertainer. Ultimately he attracted a good crowd of mixed ages and genders who enjoyed a wide variety of songs.

It's fun and laid back... it has a real beach vibe. We love to go for happy hour ($1.50 drafts!) for a cold beer (or two) and some cajun boiled peanuts. Good, inexpensive menu and kids love it too! They have live music that starts at 7:00 and an outdoor patio. Fun for everyone!

The hamburgers where juicy, the music fantastic. Great staff - casual dinner after a day on the beautiful beach of AMI.

Food was pretty good. We arrived around 11:30 for lunch and place was empty. Waitress was pleasant. Food was hot and fresh. Mahi mahi sandwich was pretty good.
