A great dinner celebrating a birthday

Very cool restaurant. Place almost smelled new inside; clean, uncluttered decor with cool island influenced artwork. Good service; good, broad menu. They are well versed in the gluten free lifestyle and were easy to work with. We had bacon wrapped scallops, with too much bacon, per my wife... read more

We went here 2x during our week stay. The first visit was great--service and food. My crab and lobster linguine was SO GOOD. A few nights later I had the same entree--fewer shrimp and just OK. My husband had ribs and said they were bland. (As a Texan, he knows his ribs. :)) My sister had the flatbread Italian and... More

This restaurant provided excellent food and service at a reasonable price. We had read poor reviews regarding their clam chowder but we found it excellent. It was not the usual but very tasty.

came in for lunch, staff looked at us and looked away. Finally someone came and seated us with dinner menus at 1:00pm, which she dropped on floor. Had to ask for lunch menus. Place was almost empty, which I can understand as they didn't appreciate potential customers. We left and won't go back.

Great drink selection. Great menu, lots to choose from. Live music in the bar. We had a lovely time! I had the Grouper Special, which was blackened grouper with 3 shrimp served with rice and green beans. Very good. My husband had the black and blue burger. He said it was the best burger he has eaten in a long... More

Got to hear covers from a really good musician in a nice and quiet enviroment with the main dining room on the other side of the bar although we could still eat close to the vocalist. THey have music most nights and are right on the main street, Periwinkle.

We go to George and Wendy's every year when we visit the island. We are never disappointed. I always order the grouper Reuben sandwich. It is phenomenal. Do yourself a favor and order the tuna nachos as well. Service was also very good. See you next year!
