Very good food and the best authentic Margarita's in town

Best hand made from scratch margarita you will ever have. Fish Tacos are outstanding. Try it, you'll like it.

This was recommended by a local so it was our first place to eat on the island. On the bayside with a great sunset view but food was a disappointment. I had fish tacos and hubby has shrimp poboy. The food was good but not great. As a side we chose grilled squash....a bit to greasy. The beer hit the... More

The music was a variety of country & Western as well as some classics. Food was very good and the waiter was cordial. A rustic place but good for coming in from the beach.

This restaurant was recommend by the hotel staff. I should have checked the menu before I sat down. The menu is limited and the prices are high compared to other places to eat on the island. The food and service was good. I had the shimp combination plate. I would not recommend this restaurant if you are looking for lower... More

The Palm Street Pier Restaurant in on the water and has a wonderful view of the bay. The food is great and the service is even better. We were there for breakfast on Saturday and they have an outstanding acoustic guitar player/singer who provides great music during the meal. The restaurant specializes in great sea food, and the breakfast dishes... More

This is definately the best place in SPI to watch the sunset. It was quiet when we visited this time as Christmas but when we visited in April it was very busy and you would need to book a table. We ate here in April and the food was great. This visit we sat on the deck with drinks and... More

Good food at a great price. Susie the bartender is quick witted and brings an easy laugh. Seating is great at the bar on the land deck and on the dock. Some nights have musical entertainment and this is a great place to see Leslie, the islands' best known singer. The regulars at the bar were friendly and engaging.

This is our go to spot for watching the sunset over the bay. They have good drinks and pretty good entertainment from time to time. Highly recommend the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail and the Captain Morgan Shrimp.

Service is a little slow, but the food was good. Enjoyed the live entertainment. Sitting by the water is relaxing.

This place has some of the best and freshest seafood on the island. My husband loves their Captain Morgan shrimp and I had the best shrimp cocktail ever. But they've cut back their hours drastically, so the first time we stopped by they had no food to offer. And the problem with the parking lot (which they don't own, so... More
