Staff and food were both amazing, they really take the time to describe the menu. Everything is farm to table, including salads and veggies coming from their garden behind the restaurant. The chef does an excellent job preparing unique dishes with interesting flavor.

About 11 of us had lunch at 29 and all were totally satisfied. The menu had interesting and unique sounding dishes and was quite ample. We tried and shared many dishes and liked them all. (Loved the fried green tomatoes!) Great salads and sandwiches. Good service and fair prices.

The staff was wonderful and the food even better. The fish tasted like it was just caught minutes earlier and the prime rib was perfect!

They had a great selection for dinner, but the food desperately lacked seasoning. The presentation and ambiance were great. Scoring this 3 out of 5.

This is my favorite local place to eat. The service is always on point and the food delicious. I also really appreciate that they grow and source the food locally. It makes a difference!

This is a must while in town. Sit on the porch and enjoy the breeze for one if the best meals and service on the island. Staff are wonderful and the food is great. It took awhile to chose- menu is wonderfully different. The crostini of smoked salmon capers with dill was delicious. The mushroom soup is surprisingly light. We... More

Laid back atmosphere-wonderful decor-friendly staff and delicious food.Their cheese pie is light and additional toppings give it a gourmet twist. Try the eggplant appetizer- quite a surprise. And the halibut was very flavorful on a bed of comforting risotto.For a casual dining experience- recommended!

We were in town for a 'Girls Weekend" on Mother's Day and had heard good reports about this restaurant. We were fortunate that someone was a no-show and our group of 6 was quickly accommodated. The wine recommendations were perfect, the food was tremendous and the energy and attention by Bob and David sealed the deal as one of our... More
