We enjoyed our dinner there a little over a week ago. Service was excellent and the food was very good. It is outside so we could see the sunset which I might add was amazing and I always love hearing the waves come into the shore. My only warning to others is, it is pricey but if you can afford...

Average pub food at best for happy hour and not very good service either. You will be treated like cattle, fat American cattle at the trough. If you like shoveling crappy deep fried food then you might like this but nothing we eat or saw was at all good.

Go for early dinner and get the sunset special. Servers are always friendly. One of our favorite places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lobster... More

This is a great middle of the road restaurant. It has a fine dinning feel with an easier price range. It is looking over the ocean with a great sunset view.

Beautiful location- that's the best I can offer knowing that there are some amazing restaurants we have tried and others we hope to. The service tonight was slow, our server didn't remember who ordered which drinks and brought them to opposite sides of the table…and they weren't really that great- Lava Flows should be awesome on a tropical island!

The food is very nice here and the service is great. The atmosphere on the patio is wonderful. We enjoyed a pleasant dinner here and look forward to trying the Happy Hour again. Eat while you listen to the waves splashing onto the shore!!

Beautiful setting, located on the beach at the 5 Palms hotel. Can't ask for a better place for a drink and dinner. Food was average, standard American menu. Staff are friendly and acknowledge immediately any error.
