Classic burger joint didn't dissappointed. Not many seats, so not for the claustrophobic. The only thing that Woolf have made lunch better would have been a beer.

This is a tiny little place with seating for no more than 20-25, so we heard that there was always a line. We went there for breakfast the 2 days we spent on the island and there was no wait at all. Service was polite and the food came out really fast (10-15 minutes top). The place is just like... More

We had a burger here after reading some of the reviews. It did not disappoint and was one of the best burgers ever. It is a small quaint place but the service is fast and friendly. Burgers are hand-made and prices are reasonable for the Island.

The only reason i will leave a 4 star review instead of 5 is because of the wait and hours. They have ridiculous hours, so you can't even avoid the line by going at an off-peak time. but if you have the patience, this place is worth the wait. the food is amazing, and the waitresses are very sweet.

We eat lunch here every time we come here. Very reasonable, fast and friendly. You may have to wait for a seat but well worth it.

I hate to write the review because I don't think many people realize this little restaurant his here, and we already have to plan our dining visits to avoid a line! BUT because this is a fantastic find I have to share our joy at this little restaurant. The Chuck Wagon is across the street between the Arnold and Sheppler... More

If you can get a seat at the bar you will be amazed as you watch the kitchen staff. The cook has grilling down to a science. We felt as though we got entertainment and lunch at Chuck Wagon. The food is delicious and extremely reasonably priced compared to other restaurants. We ordered an $18 burger at The Gate House... More

We were catching the ferry to go home. Wanted to eat here and finally got the chance. We got there just as they opened. The owners are a husband and wife team who cook and wait. The breakfast was the best we had on the island and amazing for the price. The owner/cook told us to come back for lunch,... More
