We had lunch at the Pink Pony Bar & Grill. It was crowded and boisterous. We had to wait for a table, but it was worth the wait. The food was delicious.

The Thai crunch salad is awesome there. I get it everytime. There is a hot tub next to the outside patio to relax in. Friendly staff. Get the rum runner for a drink, best on the island!

Good food, good service, awesome rum runners and the best patio on the island makes this a favorite for tourists and locals. The view of the harbor, the sand beach, the local musicians and the huge hot tub for the kids are excellent bonuses! Start with a signature rum runner with a floater for a guaranteed good time!!

Great food, great drinks, and an awesome atmosphere! Can't wait for Lilac Festival 2014 on the island. My girlfriend and I will definitely eat at the Pink Pony again!

We had dinner at the Pink Pony and were a little underwhelmed. The atmosphere was a little odd - the restaurant is very pretty, but all the waitstaff were very sloppily dressed in hoodies... It was really weird. The service was good, but the food was just so-so. We got the whitefish dip that everyone raves about and neither of... More

After a day of walking and riding horses we stopped by the Pink Pony. Nice Hotel gift shop and restaurant. Great view of the harbor and the coming and goings of the various ferry's. We had great fish plate and a French dip. Both excellent. The waiter was a bit dry. It seemed this restaurant catered to the locals. A... More

Each year as our rather large group gets off the ferry, the Pink Pony is our first stop for lunch. 2013 was the first time I had called ahead with the number in our party and the time of our arrival. Martha was given the somewhat dubious honor of taking care of us in what proved to be a good... More

Ate there at lunch. Soups are very good. Sandwiches are average. The view is why you dine here. A little over-priced for what you get.

I ordered the Boursin stuffed chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Wow. It was plated beautifully, and it was delicious too. I can't wait to eat there again.
