“Worth the trip from anywhere on the island.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We decided to drive out here from Eastsound for dinner one night, and it was well worth it. The menu is full of down-home locally-grown options. The service was top-notch, and the wine menu is extensive. We had a beautiful romantic dinner and we were made to feel welcome even though we were the last couple in the restaurant.

“A real dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We enjoy eating here when we want a romantic or special occasion night out. The chef is creative and much of the food is grown locally. The cost is high and the servings are not large but it is worth it. The views are also good.

“Great fine Dining - very casual attire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

great food and chef - decor leaves much to be desired but don't let it fool you, the food is great. Close to the marina and deers grazing outside on the grounds - aptly named.

“Delightful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

One of my favorite family owned resturants. 4 of my 6 kids have worked there and I have had them steal recipes if they can. Love it! Don't miss the chance to enjoy!

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

A bit surprising as the atmosphere didn't quite match the quality of the food. Everything we got was prepared very nicely and tasted great.
