We visited the Loose Caboose twice during our stay! The Grouper was amazing! They have an outdoor seating area that promotes people watching. We loved every minute of it. Definitely a spot to go for all meals! Enjoy!

We had a nice visit for ice cream only. Service was fast and the ice cream shop quite small. We sat outside on the corner porch. Rum Raisin and Mango ice cream were both very good!
