“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Average pub food at best for happy hour and not very good service either. You will be treated like cattle, fat American cattle at the trough. If you like shoveling crappy deep fried food then you might like this but nothing we eat or saw was at all good.

“Best view on island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

You can not beat the view and being only feet from the beach. A great place any time of the day or evening. Happy hour in the bar is wonderful but usually full by 3:30. Go for early dinner and get the sunset special. Servers are always friendly. One of our favorite places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lobster salad or lobster BLT are wonderful for lunch.

“Great food, great price, GREAT Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

This is a great middle of the road restaurant. It has a fine dinning feel with an easier price range. It is looking over the ocean with a great sunset view.

“Just ok...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Beautiful location- that's the best I can offer knowing that there are some amazing restaurants we have tried and others we hope to. The service tonight was slow, our server didn't remember who ordered which drinks and brought them to opposite sides of the table…and they weren't really that great- Lava Flows should be awesome on a tropical island! The sushi took extremely long to prepare and bring to the table. Tommy Bahamas has much better coconut shrimp. Before we ordered, server told us there were five shrimp on the plate but when they came, there were only four. Asked her about it and she never responded back with whether or not it was a menu mistake or a chef mistake. She was very kind but we were not really 'looked after'. And we had to pay the 18% gratuity as our party was a group of 9. As my title says, it was just ok. Be prepared for a long wait, even though the restaurant was not half full!
