Well. Here we go again. We went to this place religiously when it was Island Perks. Best food. Great service. It was a high spot for our very frequent visits. Bummed when they left. So we were left with this place. First few times were blah. Decent. Then went downhill. Food was sub par with service to match. Went in for what I thought would be the last time and we ordered. Sat and sat and sat. Over an hour. Very few people in, not crowded. .it was slow. So we up and left. That was 2 years ago. Since we stay in Buxton 6-8 times a year and the list is small for restaurants, I have been keeping up with the reviews and seemed like there was a new chef, food was good, service was good. Soooo, let's give it another shot. Walked up to the counter this morning and the girl asked me. Take out or eat in. No contest. The huge screened in porch is second to none. I said great. Yes. I'll be outside. So 30 minutes later. No one. There were less than 10 people in the restaurant. Same ole same ole. I guess the new chef and the great new food the owner has probably busted his butt to put in place is obsolete. The service still sucks. Here's the kicker. While walking out after sitting for 30 minutes. I did order a latte to go FROM THE SAME GIRL WHO SAID HAVE A SEAT AND I WILL BE RIGHT WITH YOU. I got my coffee. Left. And this time. Never to return. I suggest Orange Blossom and Buxton Munch Company. As a business owner myself whose phone is on 27/7 for service and availability its terribly frustrating. We spend thousands of dollars here every year. Those dollars are worked hard for to get and I want good service and good food from those owners. Those who provide that win in my book. And they win in getting my business.
