Family dinner

We stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. We showed up around 8:45 and there was no wait. First impressions were negative. We saw a roach and a few other bugs roaming around. It wasn't the cleanest place either. I guess that's to be expected with an open to elements restaurant. Once the food... read more

Food was hot, beer was cold. What more could you want? Our waitperson, Andy, was friendly and outgoing. He knew the menu cold, and had great recommendations. Easy, no-hassle meal before sunset. No worries.

Fresh salads, fish sandwiches, myriad if menu choices and all good. Ring toss game is a duplicate of another island original but skids will enjoy ... And some adults, too. Reasonable prices.

Got there early when place was quiet. Food was basically good, not great. Unfortunately when a large party sat behind us, the waitress would not even respond to us when we repeatedly asked to pay the bill, even with the check in hand with our payment. Had to pay at the bar. Even at that, it took a third person... More

We had saved this restaurant for a special last meal before going home and came away feeling we had to fight for attention from everyone but the young man at the host stand. Coffee forgotten with the desserts, mixed up food delivery, and a feeling of being rushed to finish as plates were removed only to wait 30 minutes at... More

We eat at Otters every time we visit. The food is good, fairly inexpensive by island standards, with a fun atmosphere. However, don't expect to be cool, it is always hot inside as well as out, and don't expect to be hovered over by the waitstaff, it is an island after all. Why would you be in a hurry anyway,...

Went here with friends and we all agreed the food was very good. However, our service was not that great. He barely remembered we were there, had to keep finding someone to get refills on our drinks. Plus they had a live musician (I say this loosely as he was not that great) . Not very good at his job.... More

We went here twice and were not disappointed! If you like Eggs Benedict, get the Crabby Benedict, soooo good! There were four of us and we all left happy! We even had a little incident with some spilled water (my fault) and they gave us a whole new meal on the house! Really a must visit!

Had breakfast here as part of a package, and the food was outstanding. The breakfast portions are huge, and taste wonderful.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We took my mother-in-law there for her Birthday and could not have asked for a better experience. We sat outside and there was singer with a guitar. He was awesome. They restaurant was not particularly busy and he took all of our requests, looking up songs he did not know. He... More
