I have eaten here many times, the food is fantastic. Victoria either needs more training or to be fired though. The rest of the team are great though.

We had lunch from Tate Island Grill all four days of our stay. The crab cake sandwich is absolutely delicious-I had one three days in a row! According to hubs, the grouper nuggets, cheeseburger and chicken quesadillas were yum, as well. The drinks were pretty...More
