Touristy, tasteless and over priced. It's convenient if staying in the nearly apartment complex, but that is it. It could be so much better!

We were here for lunch and the food was good. Service was friendly and we did not have to wait. Medium pricing.

Came to the restaurant with a friend and had dinner and a few drinks. The GM Michael is very unprofessional and rude. Just sitting there having fun with a friend and just over heard how rude the GM Michael was talking to his staff. I hope the owner finds out how he treats his staff and guests. He walks by... More

We went mainly for the band "Tell Scarlett" but we had driven by many times wondering about the place over the past few years. The restaurant was crowded which seemed like a good sign and after a 15-20min wait which is what we were told we were seated. We had a nice view of the beach and open seating area... More

We came because of a recommendation and were disappointed. The salads were not very fresh and the food was a little cold. They were short on wait staff. Nice beach view and good music.

The coconut shrimp and crab legs are excellent. We ate outside on a beautiful night when the entire island lost power. The staff was great and the food was delicious. A little hard to find but worth it.

Great location and good food. We sat at the bar so the service was very good and the bartender was very friendly. The mojitos are terrific again. I wasn't too impressed the last time I was here, but it looks like they're coming back!

We loved the food and the atmosphere is very relaxed, unique and beach themed. It also has a beautiful view of the ocean. We are locals and will be coming here regularly.

Love the view and the atmosphere. Our waiter, Vince, was wonderful and made our evening with friends very enjoyable. The food isn't bad, just not wonderful. I would go again for the vibe and location.
