Had a small business lunch here today and sat on the patio overlooking the water. We were treated to a Dolphin show that included one coming out of the water holding a fish. Unexpected treat, and we were very thankful to have sat on the patio. The service was spectacular, and food was wonderful and plentiful. All-around great experience!

Went late afternoon after jet skiing. The menu is varied with all selections reasonably priced. Drinks were good and beer was cold. Service was very good. Great outdoor patio, deck area right on the water. Ample parking and lots of tables inside and outside on the deck. Would definitely go there again.

Our server, Joseph, was attentive and friendly. When I asked for another cup of salsa, he brought some and extra chips for my friend... More

I love coming to this place! It's the best spot on the island, from the delicious custom drinks, to the killer live music, to the fun and laid back atmosphere! And let's not forget about the food - this is not your typical bar food! The menu has all kinds of options for any taste, and I'm always craving it!... More

we usually to to the Island for karaoke, and food is incidental. All the food I've had there has been delicious. They are usually slammed and it could take you a while to get it, but it's nice. It's wings, salads, soup, fries, burgers, etc. we have eaten there for lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed with the... More
