Really good casual restaurant on the island. They have local music on Friday and Saturday nights which is great. The food is good and the service is great. Just like most of the other restaurants on the island...be prepared for rustic surroundings and few bells and whistles. That's what most of us come here for...honest, genuine experiences. Nothing fake or... More

One of the cleanest and relaxing welcome atmospheres with great service from Jason and the rest of the crew. The owners are the nicest and love hearing your adventure stories and just make it warm and cozy to be there. Your not just a customer to them. I and you will absolutely love this place. Kenny

We ate here twice during our stay, which is something we rarely do. Everything we had was fantastic. I highly recommend the Tuna. It is more of a Bar atmosphere but very comfortable and friendly.

We happened to go here on Halloween night. They had a band that was very good. We ate at the bar. My wife was not very hungry and just got chicken tenders. I got something..... tacos? I can't remember... it was that unremarkable. It was rather distracting trying to eat while a drunk woman continuously complained that the place was... More

This review is limited to the oyster special, a dozen for $7.00. While they were little, they were tasty. A good guitar/singer made for a nice afternoon on the porch. I would prefer to rate at 3.5 stars.

We stopped here right when we got off the ferry for lunch. My father is in a wheel chair and there was 7 of us. They sat us right away and the server was so sweet and accommodating. The food was so good. You have to try the crab dip and the soft shell crab sandwich. I will be going... More

Food was average at best. Oysters served piled up on a small dinner plate. Since this is an oyster place you would think they would have trays to serve a dozen oysters. Service was terrible. Won't be back. Had an excellent dinner the next night at Daijo for less money!

friendly staff I really enjoyed the food but my husband wasn't all that satisfied with it. I have eaten better steamed shrimp on the island. Great French Fries!!!! not a bad place to grab a quick bite. I would probably eat here than going to the more popular place down the road

Oysters didn't taste fresh. People were walking around barefooted. Just not a good experience overall. Will not return..
