was very quite in May, but its nice to travel in off season. If you need a lot of people around you, this may not be the place for you.

Located in Oyster Pond, this restaurant offers one of the best fun atmospheres in the area. The service is great and fun and the owner adds much charm and liveliness to the experience. The food is good but with various high quality restaurants it is a level below. Still, much fun and recommended. Unique by the water!

Saturday's buffet and dance party was a lot of FUN!. The selection of food was plenty. Maggi(the owner) was there each time and interacted with us. Truly, great.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal for anyone who wants to sleep in a hotel room before chartering with The Moorings or Sunsail. The sea view side has a terrific view of the channel out of Oyster Pond, the swimming pool is delightful, and the beds are comfortable. But it takes them a while to... More

This was the most incredible buffet. Roast beef, turkey, lamb, pork, fish, lobster accompanied by a huge assortment of salads, vegetables (especially artichoke... More

I'm not sure why my hotel recommended this place but I would highly recommend you go somewhere else---even McDonald's would have been better. Service-AWFUL. I was one of the first in the restaurant and waited well over 30 minutes for the waiter to bother to come over to the table. He wanted to take my meal order but I had... More

Definitely not a good choice if you are in Oyster pond area ! Food is very 'simple', not tasty and quit expensive ! I will remember this place as a 'to forget' restaurant !

We found this place on the map while driving for a while exploring the island, this is the place not to go after doing that!. there was a server there who gets too political for this type of places, not everyone is ready to hear so much crap, after a long trip. The worst were the comments against Canadians. We... More
