Loved the environment and the food! They offered very unique choices and they were delicious. We loved it. Went there twice, in fact, in just two days!

Had the pleasure of sitting at the bar first while James was on duty, then while Karl was mixing up the drinks. Both of them are amazing to watch and very engaging with the patrons. Drinks were very yummy!

Always busy, but worth the wait. Great food and good service. I recommend the whitefish ruben sandwich and the tomato basil soup.

I come here for the food, staff and atmosphere. Karl and Courtney work in harmony at one of the busiest bars on the island and make it look easy. I recommend the Painted Pony Maccaroni Balls....To Die For. The Tomato bisque they are served with is amazing. You also can't leave without trying the triple crown sandwich ( come hungry)... More

We arrived on the island very early on a rainy morning. With not much open, we found the Seabiscuit open and hospitable. Had eggs, bacon, hash browns and a coffee with Baileys. (Don't judge; I'm on vacation). The host was extremely friendly. The portions were generous and the bacon was to die for! Pricey, but it's expensive ferrying everything to... More

Gave a review for The Pony but should have been Seabiscuit. As I said,"The fish was boring. Should have ordered Salmon.

Came end of season so most restaurants were closed. We ended up here and it was definitely worth the stop. The fish was delicious. We also tried the cheese curds. Thoroughly impressed. Staff was friendly and warm spirited.

We ordered some wings, onion rings, and fries as a carry out after we were seated. The restaurant was a bit loud and it's always crowded, which tells you just how good the food is! But we decided to step out of the crowd and make our table available to someone else. The wings are huge, very meaty and the... More
