This is now officially my favorite restaurant, and I eat out quite often! Our server, Danielle, was over-the-top awesome, and she is now our favorite server! We liked her so much that after having such a great lunch experience we came back the following day for dinner and requested her and was accommodated with no problem. Anotehr couple came in... More

We went there for the Pot Roast, which is very good, however, if you go, have their BBQ Ribs! Over the top delicious!! Perhaps their best kept secret.........

I had the filet mignon and it was fantastic. Mashed potatoes were creamy and wonderful and the broccoli was steamed to firm and not mushy. Portions were small for the money but then I had room for dessert! Bananas Foster cheesecake was OUTSTANDING!!

Ask for Daniel (from Memphis) and order the whitefish. You will not be disappointed! Excellent service and great atmosphere.

Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible. But if you're on vacation you want something better than Applebee's unless you're into that sort of thing. It just wasn't great and we had higher expectations.

Food was average and expensive. Lunch service was slow even though the place was only 1/3 full. An entree and dessert lunch (salad and a burger) took 90 minutes.

Our server, Waters, was incredibly attentive and very friendly. He checked on us constantly and made sure we had everything we needed. The food came out quickly and my husband and I both loved what we... More

Our family of 4 went there for a late dinner after arriving on the island. There were only 3-4 tables that had people at them. Yet, it took us 2 hours to get through dinner there! Every part of the service was slow. It took forever for the waitress to acknowledge us. Then it took forever to get drinks. Then... More
