Great lunch spot after visiting the lighthouse!

We were able to walk in and eat at the counter. It was packed! The food was excellent for all of us. The only drawback was waiting around 30 minutes for our food.

Thank you for your nice review. So glad you enjoyed your Lunch selections after your visit to our beloved Lighthouse. Sorry you had to wait awhile for your food, but you came in after we completely packed out, and that means some wait time, as in any restaurant. And we make everything fresh per order, and that takes some time,... More

A hidden gem on the island. We have made this an annual lunch stop for many years. I had the rockfish tacos which portion size was large and tasty. My wife always gets the tai chicken wrap. A fun atmosphere. Owner and attentive staff always have a smile. jack & debbi

My husband and I had a delightful late lunch here. Even though we arrived 15 minutes before closing ( didn't realize it closed at 4 p.m.), the staff couldn't have been nicer! We had the fried shrimp tacos. What a feast!

Saw the sign about the great food. Upon entry was told they were really full and it would be over an hour wait just to be seated. The look on her face really told me that she didn't care if we stayed or left. So we left. Unfriendly!
