While I found our server a bit abrupt, we enjoyed our dinner quite a bit. I am celiac and was able to find some options that were gluten free although they wont guarantee cross contamination and also added a note to the menu stating that less than 1% of the US population are truly gluten intolerant or celiac. As I... More

On a very slow night, we had a great experience here. The tempura beets appetizer was ridiculously good! Great, helpful service, and good atmosphere.

Average island fare. Nothing fancy here, it is loud and not cozy. Beer and wine selection pretty limited

I say fancy because we weren't expecting the style of food that they serve, just based on the name. But when we were given a former wine bottle filled with water, we knew it was fancy pants. But we did not feel out of place in our non fancy clothes. I mean it is a beach island. Anyway, we tried... More

You cannot book so there may be a short wait, but that simply is an indicator of the high standard of food that you are coming to eat! I thought the menu was very exciting and I loved all of it. You absolutely have to have the Shrimpscargot, it was outstanding, absolutely stunning. I know its a lot to suggest... More

The food here was excellent - I had the shrimpcargot with spinach and garlic butter and it was mouthwatering. The veggies were even delicious..others at the table had their ribs and everything was delicious, down to the last bite. Definitely worth a visit!

Others had the hot dogs, burgers and pot roast dishes - all got the thumbs up particularly the pot roast. To... More

Had another amazing meal. We had a party of nine so we sat outside so we could all sit together. The ambience outside is not good but the food definitely made up for it. We love Eat here and will definitely be back.

Thank Lisa G
