We went to a birthday dinner with 13 people ...the staff and waitresses were very polite, the food was hot and served to everyone at the same time and it was delicious! Some food items are pricey but we will still go back to eat there!

Their buffalo wings were excellent and they were having 49 cent wings that night (just be aware that the mild sauce is still quite hot and spicy). My husband had those and for his dinner he had the clam strip appetizer that turned out to be larger than some of the plates he has gotten at other places. These clam... More

The one thing I didn't like was we got there at 4:55 and they would not open the doors. When we did get in, the server was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was good. The atmosphere was OK, but the music needed to be turned down. Moderately priced.

Our week vacation at the shore and ready for a nice dinner out. First choice: the Bistro at Just Baked couldn't get in until after 8:15....really...midweek...after season? So, headed out to Quartermaster's where we had a good meal last few years. We were nicely greeted and seated. Prompt waitress arrival. Great special: any bottle of wine $13! Yes, we're in!... More

Stopped for dinner on our last night on th island. Ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer. It was delicious. Had the Captain's Platter - the shrimp, oysters, scallops and flounder were done to perfection. We saw the other reviews on this place, but it exceeded our expectations.

Ate there on 9/13/2014. Restaurant is nicely decorated. Not white table cloth, but not your typical fried fish house, either. Reggae music was cool. Nice bar. I had a house salad, which was made of high-quality greens, not bagged iceberg mix. Salad was fresh and tasty. Main course, I had shrimp and scallops in Boursin cream sauce. It was properly... More

Stopped in here in the early evening just for an appetizer and a beer. The restaurant is very clean and nicely decorated, the staff was very friendly, and the service was top notch. The coconut shrimp and dipping sauce were delicious. There were many excellent seafood choices on the menu (and many non-seafood items as well) and the prices are... More

My husband and I were on vacation about 2 months ago and ventured into this establishment even though the reviews were not great. When we entered, the dining room was slammed as was the bar but we found a seat at the bar. The bartender was super busy but she kept smiling and made sure that we were well taken... More
