I was rather disappointed as I had heard good reviews. However, the food was just mediocre. I had fish (Drum) that was baked. It had some kind of crustacean on the top that was dry and rubbery served on top of grits that were too rich for my palate. I am a big fan of grits, so that was a... More

You will have to cruise a very long way to beat this wonderful restaurant! First, the gumbo. Oh yeah did I mention I've had it all along the coast and this was perfectly balanced with seafood flavor, Cajun spices, and lovely shrimp. Hit there on a Friday and two in our party had the special prime rib. Brother is the... More

Up scale restaurant. The decor was excellent. The food was wonderful. The andouille sausage chowder was great. Not too spicey. My wife had fish of the day, and it was with lobster over it, very, very good. I had the center cut ribeye with three different butters. I asked for rare, and I got rare. It was cooked perfectly, thats... More

We decided to stop in for lunch and as always it was see delicious. The waitress was very detailed when explaining the special and the atmosphere was great. We both ate the Chicken Caprese with veggies and would definitely recommend this plate. Chef Ricky came out to the table and made us feel very welcome. We will be going back... More

I know we picked a bad evening, with a boisterous crowd from the pétanque tournament that weekend. The sound level was reaching unbearable levels. Maître 'd apologized but couldn't really do much about it. But that aside, even before the players showed up, with only four parties in the room, we had to raise our voices to talk to each... More

We stopped in for lunch with a party of six on a recent trip to the island. It was a recommendation from a local and had good TA reviews so I thought I chose wisely. A young lady seated us and distributed menus, informing us she was not our waiter but would be happy to get us drinks. The dining... More

New York Strip Steak and Grilled Grouper in Corn Husk Wrapper are two of the better selections. However, if you are there on a Friday the special of Prime Rib is hard to resist.

We visited here on a quiet Wednesday night. Most people were outside, but we chose to stay in with only one other table occupied. The dinners (the scallop special) were excellent, as was the service. We would definitely go back.

We were seated close to the kitchen area and would have preferred eating outside as there were tables out there, they said it was closed due to lightning but it was way off in the distance, I think they didn't want to be bothered sitting anyone out there. The entrees were just okay, would have been better off going to... More
