The steamed clams were the best ever had. My husband said the cornbread muffins might be the best he ever had. Also recommend the grits. Very creamy. The decor isn't as fancy as I expected. Like a golf club restaurant but with fancier lighting. The staff was very friendly and the head chef came by our table to ask about... More

Excellent dining experience from the food to the ambience to the wait staff. Our group enjoyed the shrimp cocktail, chopped salad, grouper, and steak meals; all of which were delicious. The waiter was quite friendly and knowledgable re: wine selections. Drinks were excellent. Try the front corner booth near the window; a nice cozy spot which gives the feel that... More

This was our third choice for the day, and we wanted a nice place for my birthday dinner.They have a good menu with many wine choices. Our server was exceptional. Our fish dinners were tasty and just the right amount. Everything was nicely presented. It was nice to have the shuttle take us door to door in the cold weather.

I will start by saying I really love their menu. I loved that I had the option to create my own meal, even though they had tempting signature items which sounded delicious. I enjoyed the grilled grouper and sea salt french fries are both were excellent. The fries look hand cut and taste out of this world. The view is... More

I had seen the reviews, so I was really expecting a treat. Therefore, I was surprised that the grilled Mahi Mahi tasted about like Gorton's fish fillets from the grocery store. Actually, I believe Gorton's is better. The coleslaw was excellent; corn succotash ok. All the portions were small. The largest item was the large cornbread muffin. I stopped on... More

Some of the best sea food on the Island. I ate the shrimp both times during our stay. Service was very good, prices were reasonable too.

Cool spot in the plantation. Great food, will come back. Waitress was fun and happy, grouper was amazing. There's a small bar to eat dinner as well. We could walk there from our house rental which was great!

The service was great, and the food was good, but not outstanding. Not sure I would go back. Portions pretty small. I had the grilled shrimp which didn't have much taste. The sea salt fries were good, but they were skimpy on the portion. Atmosphere kind of dull.

Had dinner here on New Year's Eve and was disappointed with the food and ambiance. The lighting is much to bright and could be turned down a bit. Some tables had tablecloths, however ours did not. We had the crab encrusted grouper which was just okay. There are other restaurants in the area that are much more worthy of a... More

Food was great. My wife didn't like the margaritas that came out but the staff worked very hard to get her something that she liked. Plenty of food and very good.
