This little hole in the wall is fabulous!! We were in SSI for a week on business and just when I was giving up on finding good food (See other reviews), I followed a TripAdvisor recommendation and tried this place. Went back TWICE in two days and would have gone a third had we not been across the island at dinner. The crab cakes are INCREDIBLE!! You simply MUST start with that (or oysters). I had their spinach salad with grilled mahi and poppyseed vinaigrette. So flipping good, I had the EXACT same thing the next night. My friend had grilled shrimp over salad. It was excellent also. But on night two, she had the grilled mahi basket with the bacon wrapped green beans. People, hear me now, GET THE GREEN BEANS!! Absolutely fantastic! Their grilled salmon with pesto is a specialty. If you like an adventuresome drink, get the Wobbly Roger. It is coke mixed with cherry moonshine garnished with an angry cherry which is a cherry soaked in the moonshine. My hand to God, you will not feel your tongue afterward. And then there was Nicky's Hard Fruit Punch. Woo! Our most favorite place, by far.
