Had a great time. The food and wait staff were great and friendly. The atmosphere was good and it was where you knew it would be good food. There were a lot of people but we were able to get seated in a timely manner.

We had a great time overlooking the shoppers from the upstairs eatery. Noisy with lots of enjoyable conversation, friendly staff, good food and reasonably priced.

This place came recommended by friends. We went early for lunch. Service slow. $80 for a couple of drinks and appetizers. Maybe we hit it at the wrong time, but we found many other lesser known places on the strip more enjoyable.

This was walking distance to our hotel. Their Jerk Chicken was to die for! Also had an island specialty dish that I couldn't pronounce. Everything we had there was great, so were the drinks. We went back twice!

Enjoyed my lunch here so much I went back again. The second floor deck is a great place to relax and watch the masses on the street below. Nice relaxed vibe with great service. My nacho platter was huge, should be listed as an entree!...More

Stopped in for a light snack. We had coconut shrimp and wings-both very good. We looked out over at 3 cruise ships that were visiting for the day. I ordered a mojito-I have to say it was great!!! It was made perfectly with no lime...More

We were getting tattoos in the outdoor mall and got hungry so we stopped here. The food was not bad, we got the jerk chicken. It was not our first choice but it was not bad.
