We are very picky about seafood having lived on the water for years. The blackened Mahi, grilled shrimp and fried shrimp were amazing!!! The sides and land lover entrees were average. Would definitely return for the seafood! Casual atmosphere!

Couldn't wait to have dinner here. Read the good reviews. We both got the stuffed shrimp. It was horrible. My husband eats just about anything but he didn't eat it. Go to Dirty Al's instead. Very reasonable prices and good food.

We arrived on the island and were looking to eat an early dinner. Our first choice didn't open for another two hours so it was on to choice #2. We enjoyed the blackened Mahi Mahi with fresh veggies and the fried shrimp. Dress down or as you wish and enjoy a 4 Star Option

Service OK...Food OK, nothing that would make you say WOW...I thought the prices were high....not a lot of food on our plate..We have ate there before and received much better food and service...maybe it was just an off day for them.

Here is the most important thing: the portions are HUGE. My family normally likes generous portions, but after being in the sun all day and snacking and "staying hydrated" we were not as hungry as normal. And we were staying in a hotel with no real way to eat the leftovers, we left at least $30 worth of food on... More

We went here for dinner and it is very large so they can handle a crowd. Great seafood at reasonable prices plus great service.

So i'll start by saying that we sat in the back room they have, overlooking the street. We didn't get great service and I think a lot of that is due to being in that room, and the server we had. The table was small for 4 people but the food was great. My husband had the Teriyaki Tuna and... More

We sat at the bar & had the best bartender... Edson. Food was fabulous! We had a burger, onion rings (giant) and boneless hot wings. Edson made the perfect dirty martini! :) Loved this place!!! Will return & I recommend it to everyone!

We arrived and waited in the waiting area for 20 minutes not to bad because it was busy! Our waiter wasn't the best but he was nice and tried his best. The food was good my Mexican shrimp cocktail was AMAZING! It really was the best thing I are all weekend. My stuffed shrimp was ok not bad just not... More
