“Don't let the bad reviews fool you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A friend and I decided to try this restaurant while vacationing on the island. We were attracted to it simply because of its unique location. After reading many of the awful reviews on here we were a little worried but there was nothing to worry about. We were seated quickly, our waitress was very attentive and checked on us frequently. We had our meals within 10 minutes! I don't eat seafood often enough to be a huge critic but my flounder tasted pretty good to me and the lobster bisque was to die for. The food was great, the view was amazing, and I have no complaints on the service. So glad we gave this place a try!

“It's good...not great, but good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I'd agree with other evaluations - it's run down and could be cleaner.... The food is good, but overpriced for the ambiance of the place.

“Pier possibilities”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Over priced but not so much for eating, in need of repair and unkept. A great place to fish. Parking was very limited.

“Great dinner even in the rain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Our family took advantage of a rainy evening to walk out the pier for dinner. Food was more than acceptable and service from Sunny was great. Good spot for families with small children as well. Early bird dinners until 6:00 pm fill the place up, but diners really thin out by 7:00, at least on a rainy night.

“Take advantage of the early bird menu.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Wonderful atmosphere, sitting on the pier, watching the fishermen and the dolphins. Great location for families. The early bird menu offers several options very reasonably priced. Service was so, so, had to ask to have drinks refilled. Definitely need to check it out.
