The burger was great

The burger we are was very good, my dad had a salad and loved it. There isn't to much to choose from on the menu that sounded good, but the burger was a great choice. My nephew got to make his own pizza, which he loved doing.

A small but excellent new restaurant. The onion soup was absolutely delicious, full of onions not just broth. The home style menu is just what we were looking for. Service was great and we were told by the server that depending on what we ordered the food may not come out together. They work out of two kitchens. I suggest... More

The food was excellent, we were a party of 4, we had the scallops, the Wahoo fish (sp??), gulf shrimp, and a variety of their appy's, we did all as share plates. All were excellent, perfectly cooked and presented. We even loved their sides, the corn casserole and roasted brussel spouts were our favorites. Service was very attentive and friendly.... More

This little place is awesome. The menu is outstanding. We went twice during the week. Very friendly servers who know the menu. Creative dishes and wide range of items. Love this place. Can't go wrong. Fish, steak, tacos, and the best burger you'll find. Salads are great too.

We were there twice, lacking better (tasting) alternatives. Try to be early (opens 5.30) as the restaurant doesn't take reservations. The menu (fish!) and interior are quite appealing. For our first visit they pushed two smaller tables together. The second time around though they rejected our group (same number of people!), claiming they are not equipped for such a large... More

I have been visiting the island for years. Someone suggested eat here, my wife and I tried it out. Our server was absolutely awful along with the manager whom I believed her name was Lauren? Laura? She was rude. The server seemed to have too much on his plate and made us feel like we were not important. The food... More

We can't knock this restaurant too much. The food was good tasting but a little overpriced. The service was horrible. We arrived 15 minutes after they opened and were the third table. Family of 4 ordered our dinners and drinks. My daughter ordered "make your own pizza ". They brought the shell, sauce, etc. a very cool idea for kids.... More

Try one of the specials, I had hoped for something a little more outside the box but the food was good, the staff is very efficient and obviously restauranteurs not just workers, open late!
