Where do I start...well I walked in to find one member of staff asleep with her head on the cash register. I then walked to the bar, got a menu and ordered food and a soft drink.

I visited this restaurant as part of an inland excursion from a cruise. There were about 10 of us, we were the only ones in the restaurant. Food was very good and value was ok.

We never saw a price for anything we ordered. But we still didn't expect... More

And the music is about all that was great! Food was ok and not so wonderful. Every drink I asked for they seemed to be out of the mix to make it. I had a jerk chicken sandwich and a Pepsi and total with tip was $30. I'm far from being cheap when on vacation but that was way too... More

We had chicken tenders and fries. They were probably frozen and fried but they were decent. I'm not a big fan of the resort food.
