The food and service is consistently good. With so many different restaurants on the island this one stands apart. The staff is always professional and courteous. You can tell they actual care about their customers. The food is always good and with reasonable prices. Very clean and well lit.

Good dining options are hard to find on SPI. Our family of 4 was looking for more than burgers but not an expensive seafood restaurant. This fit the bill perfectly. What an awesome experience! I wanted to go the first night we were in town, but my husband decided we should do something different since The Garden Grille was inside... More

Francisco B waited on our table and was very friendly and accommodating. The menu has a good variety with prices lower than I expected for a hotel grill.

Some basic menu items - but provides a good alternative to the overly expensive and / or fried food on the island. If you want to just relax and have some decent good - this is your place. $$. entries $8-$12.
