Great food. Wonderful place to stay while you wait for your flight out. I had a shrimp cocktail and the shrimp salad. Great service.

“A little bit out of town but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We stumbled upon this restaurant one evening when driving our golf cart away from town. We decided to stop for dinner and it was excellent. My husband had lobster and I had the baked lasagna (which was huge)! Both were very delicious and we were stuffed. The owners offered us dessert which we gladly accepted but asked to have it boxed so we could enjoy it later. We went for the carrot cake which later that night was awesome.

Kathryne S...Thank you so much for this excellent review....The entire staff is happy to hear how much you enjoyed the Lobster & Lasagna........And we got a little laugh of the late night dessert comment, simply because a few of us enjoy a little for ourselves after closing ........

“VERY NICE, LAID BACK,EXCELLENT ENTREES!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

I like to go out and have a nice meal once in a while, and found Black Orchid to be a really cool place, ambient, classy, and the best fresh baked bread on the island- Judy Ann is the chef, and ate just as good there as any yacht II have ever been on! Her husband Tom runs the bar, and is a cool dude, plus they are scuba divers-so how can you go wrong! Not the place for one on a tight budget, but worth every penny! Tell 'em Divemaster Harland sent you!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Stopped in while golf carting around the island last week. Cool drinks in a super atmosphere. Breezy and open and friendly people, made us feel right at home.
