We have been coming here since 1999. Love the place! Great food, you've gotta try the seafood burrito and the macho nachos! Although, I promise you that I have never had a bad meal here. On vacations, we come here almost everyday. Heck, I've even came for lunch turned around and came back for dinner! The staff is awesome! Always... More

The app Crab Dip...WOW but it should have been served with pita points instead of crackers. But it was DELICIOUS!! And good portion! Priced right also. Also had the seared Tuna with Fried Oysters! Very tasty, plentiful and a great price. The side of mashed potatoes was very good. Red potatoes with skin on....YUMMY! And the mixed drinks were very... More

I have been going to Isle of Palms for eight years and always include at least one visit per trip to Banana Cabana. The macho nachos are enough for four or more adults and the drinks are very tasty. When live entertainment has been there they are very enjoyable.

My husband and I enjoyed drinks and dinner at this restaurant. I had a nice taco salad and my husband enjoyed a burger and fries. We ate outside in the courtyard and it was a very nice atmosphere.

Easy to just come right off the beach and grab something simple. Wonderful place to get out of the sun and have an ice cold cocktail.
