“Mediocre mid day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

This may be a high end dinner place but it is certainly run of the mill at mid day. Crab and shrimp sandwich on croissant filled me but I was quite sure the shrimp was from a can

“Wouldn't return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

During the meal our server was unavailable; we finally had to ask another server for the check. Food was OK.

“Amazing seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

By far the best meal of the week, very fresh seafood with an interesting menu and nice wine list. It's very small, and pretty slow - call first, we saw several people leave after waiting a while. Great for a leisurely dinner. (Beer and wine only)

“Great service and even greater food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Finally! I real fresh dinner! We had been to a few restaurants before this one and were not quite as happy as we should have been for the price. But someone recommended the sunshine seafood cafe and we were so pleased! I had one of their specials with pesto pasta fresh blackened grouper and blackened shrimp. Let me tell you, AMAZING! My brother had the fresh yellowfin tuna and it was absolutely to die for! It was light and flakey. Well worth the price. The staff was so sweet and hospitable to my family of 5 (who can be kind of loud at some points) and always made us feel welcomed and definitely did not judge us when we walked into the restaurant. Best dinner here on the island so far! I would totally recommend it to anyone in the area; visiting or local.
