Great food, great service!

Local hotspot. Doretta and Tony are the best. Great burgers, ice cold beer, all you can eat crab legs. Best of the best on HHI.

We just discovered this little gem on the last day of our recent visit. The service was very attentive, and the fried fish sandwich was one of the best I have ever tried!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I treat my grandkids to birthday dinners of their choosing. Two grandsons wanted AUCE crab legs so I took them to the Cafe and WOW! The crab legs were fantastic. They were plump and sweet and plentiful. I quit after the first serving but the boys have hollow legs and... More

We came back to this restaurant after an excellent experience September 2014. Unfortunately, we did not receive the same service (although we had the same waiter!) We needed a table for 7, several 4 top tables were empty and the staff would not push them together. We were told "our option" was to sit at a 5 top and add... More

We dined here on a Saturday night and were very happy we'd made reservations since the line to get in suggested we'd have a long wait otherwise. I had a steak and my wife had crab legs. Both were excellent once they arrived on our table. Be sure to ask for your salad dressing on the side otherwise your salad... More

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. We are glad your wife enjoyed her food. Most of our salads are served dressing on the side but for the ones that are not we would be happy to accommodate you. As for being understaffed you are absolutely right. It has been an exceptionally busy off season and... More

We dined here because we bought a Groupon or Living Social deal (there's often a reason why locations need to go through Groupon or Living Social anymore). The food wasn't anything to rave about, the service was ok, and the prices were ok. There just wasn't anyting about the place that made me want to come back. There are so... More

Nice little place to grab a light bite or complete dinner. Tony, the bartender, is very personable. Nicely located in the Main Street area with little shops.

Was there for Super Bowl. They had a pig roast outside and it was great. Our server never let our glass get empty . Only complaint is that the wrong team won.
