This was the first place we stopped when we got on the island. We had breakfast and everyone was very pleased. They made a really good bloody mary too.

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat for breakfast before we needed to catch the ferry back home. We ordered some breakfast sandwiches which were very good. The waitress was aware of our time crunch and was so prompt and even offered us to go cups of coffee. Service was definitely excellent.

I lived on the island for several years, and we go back as often as we can, so I have the advantage of knowing where all the good places are... This is one of them... Lots of atmosphere... really good service... great place for breakfast or lunch...

We strolled by this restaurant our first night on the island, and since we already had a dinner reservation elsewhere, the friendly, seasoned hostess standing outside the door convinced us to come back the next day for breakfast. When we arrived (around 9:30) a different hostess met us at the door, and informed us there would be a 10-minute wait.... More

This restaurant had delicious banana bread French toast with a banana cream cheese filling and the service was great!!! The only inconvenience was this restaurant does not have high chairs. We had to set my 15 month old daughter in between my husband and I in a booth seat. Someone had to hold her at all times so she wouldn't... More

Food: War Admiral Hot Wings - about 8 large wings lightly and perfectly coated in hot sauce. Delicious. Lobster BLT - not bad, could do with fresher ingredients. Footlong hotdog - a lot of food! Not too bad. Could do with natural casing dogs instead of the tough skin. Honey chicken burger - 2 tiny little things served with sweet... More

Had an outstanding experience! Outstanding service from the lady that does the seating to our waiter Ryan. The food was amazing! My husband stayed the rest of the afternoon at the bar.

We got there around 3 for a late lunch and they were packed. We sat at the bar which ended up being a blast. Hearing stories from the bartenders about growing up on the island and what and where to go from an insider. Everyone in the group was very happy with their food. The presentation and flavors are not... More

The food was good and the service was fast considering it was a very busy Saturday lunch time on the island. There were people waiting at the door to get a table. There is a good selection of sandwiches. I got 2 whitefish tacos and they were very good. The hubby got a rueben and liked it too. People around... More

Very good burgers and lamb pita. We really enjoyed sitting at the bar, the bar tender was very funny and care taking, unfortunately I don't remember his name, but you won't miss him, big bearded guy and is always laughing. Very nice atmosphere and food.
