Just simply Delicious

Amazing food + amazing setting = amazing dining experience. If you can't afford to stay on the island at least take advantage of the sunday brunch. Amazing set up of food in an amazing setting that you take a free boat ride to get to....

This is one of the most difficult reviews have ever had to write. Just to set the scene.you go across on a beautiful boat, prior to which you are greeted warmly by a hostess in a beautiful waiting area. Full of anticipation and hope. You arrive at what can only be defined as paradise, White tableclothes on wood decking surrounded... More

For our twentieth anniversary we were excited to try this island getaway for dinner. The check-in was quite easy and smooth and the woman who checked us in was very welcoming and pleasant. The shuttle to the island is a replica of an old Chris Craft launch and the captain and mate were quite friendly on the lovely ride out... More

We arrived to an extremely rude hostess (I think her name was Brenda) who was unaccommodating to our change in reservation time and table selection. We ended up sitting alone in the wooded area with no view of the sunset while there were still a few tables left on the beach side. Her attitude ruined our dining experience. The waitress... More

My wife and I visited here last September for our Anniversary. We took the Ferry from the landing and unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs. The staff from the boat crews to the servers were very helpful and nice. Since it was our special day, they actually made a special menu with our names on it. The food was... More

Stunningly beautiful, this restaurant offers delicious food, exceptional service and incomparable views. On this visit, we dined here for brunch to celebrate our son's 30th birthday, and he was given a personalized scroll with the menu to commemorate his special day. In addition, birthday greetings were written in chocolate on his dessert platter. Every mouthful was a gastronomic experience. Even... More

I have never eaten dinner on a beach with a live deer coming to my table before, but I can't say that any more. This is a very special place and it was a great time sharing it with friends. The service is outstanding - attentive, professional and pleasant.

Chateaubriand and Lobster for two, add a bottle of Opus One, and you won't regret it! At night the island is lit with flaming tiki torches, and very romantic.

My wife & I celebrated our wedding anniversary at this restaurant. You could not have asked for a better sunset or a more pleasant setting overlooking the little beach. As nice as the surroundings were... our meal was even better! We both went with a 4 course tasting menu plus dessert ($99) paired with a nice bottle of wine. Highlights... More
