Beautiful view out on deck

Nice place to sit outside, enjoy some food and drinks. 2 live parrots outside. Food was ok, but more French fries than seafood in the seafood basket.

We were there in the early afternoon. First off they left us standing long enough that we almost left. Should have. The staff was busy fooling around with each other. When we were finally seated and got our drinks one got spilled and the waitress was rude. When she got a new one as she set it down in a... More

Always friendly service and good daily specials! We enjoy going here for oysters and shrimp, while sitting outside enjoying the views of the bay!

Our friends chose this restaurant and we didn't know what to expect. It was fantastic! We've been all over the island in the last few days and the service has been awful everywhere but here. The margaritas were great, the food was good and the service was outstanding. We had a party of 22...some of which were very demanding. Our... More

The staff here are very accommodating, and we were happy to find their deck/restaurant DOG FRIENDLY. Our dog was given her own water bowl by a staff member, and our food was delicious. Two beautiful parrots, each in their own huge cage on the deck, will keep you company. Standard Mexican fair, and contrary to other reviews, we did like... More

Stopped in for lunch, and sat out on the deck, in the warm sun. First time we've eaten here since last winter. The service was polite and friendly, beers were cold, and reasonably priced. The food was as ordered, and cooked properly. Portions are large, so keep that in mind if lunch is a lite meal for you. The view... More

The buffalo chicken wrap was the best on the island . The other food they serve not so much . The fish tacos are horrible . Although they say that they are the fan favorite .

Sat on the patio for a beautiful view of the sunset. Food was good, and the drinks were scrumptious. Fun time.

We didn't eat in the restaurant, only went parasailing. The boat ride out was beautiful and the crew were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The bay is only a few feet deep, so you have a great view of the sea grass and fish. My husband and I were disappointed because we had to parasail separately (they... More
