Best view-good food

I believe this location has had a few places there in the past. We decided to give it a try once more and were very glad we did. First of all the view is wonderful and we enjoyed the professional service we received. They had a special for under $30 that had an app, salad, entrée and dessert. All... read more

I'm a Customer Service trainer for 40 years and have never seen such poor treatment of a situation...from a manager no less!,. We've been several times and food is GOOD, view is wonderful. Last night we took friends for their first time. They had arrived early and ordered an appetizer in the bar(crab cakes - $5) which were dry and... More

Had appetizers in bar for Happy Hour ... terrible crab cakes, mostly bread, overcooked and dry. Told hostesses ... asked for $5 credit ... never head back. My husband's dinner was terrible, but he was so hungry he ate it. Called "manager" (I use that term loosely) over to ask the status of credit. He came to table with a... More

Very nice people. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We sat out on the covered patio. There was a storm that evening and the lightening was fabulous. The staff did not rush us to leave and let us stay as long as we wanted. I would recommend this place.

Turks and Caicos just got a little closer to being heaven after eating here. Best food on the island for price point or any price. Excellent food service and presentation

Went there for dinner with family while on vacation. Maybe we were not dressed to impress but it's the beach. The lobster mac and cheese was to die for. Could have had that for my entire dinner. The peel and eat shrimp had no flavor at all and the dirty vein was still intact. Gross. Who wants to eat gritty... More

WOWzers! You have to go! Dean our waiter was super cool and so helpful! A friendly visit from the New Yorker in Florida (think he was the owner!) was a great end to the evening! The sunset was so die for and so was the Lobster Mac n Cheese! Everyone in our party were thrilled with their meal! X

I love the location of this restaurant. You have to come here right as the sun goes down, you will get a lot of great pictures. I have been here twice. Both times the service has been excellent. I would like to see a more modern take on Seafood on their menu. However, everything is cooked very nicely. I enjoy... More
