If you crave a properly cooked crispy duck --- this is the place. Done with blackberry reduction, which likewise enhances the blistered asparagus. Excellent attention to service and décor. Surprised us with a free desert for our anniversary. One of the best values on the island for quality food and service. Take your friends!!!

My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant expecting to find just appetizer like food for a quick snack. However, we quickly changed our minds once we entered the restaurant. The outside appearance looked to be typical of a beachside restaurant. The interior was quite amazing, the staff were so very wonderful and the food choices on the menu were... More

If you like mussels, try their bucket of mussels, especially at happy hour. Delicious, lots of fresh tomatoes in sauce, tasty and fresh! They were good last year but this year it was so much better that we asked why the change. Turns out there is a new chef. Kudos to the chef. Everything we ate the first night was... More

Pulled in just thinking it was a seafood shack and was surprised to see tablecloths and pretty table settings. Felt a little underdressed but the staff made us feel right at home. Good selection of seafood and beef, chicken, etc. I had the bone in veal chop with truffle butter which was a special...AMAZING! The waitstaff was excellent!

Don't be fooled by the sign the says patio lounge, this is a very nice restaurant inside with a lovely menu. White table cloths and a really cool wine cellar room that can fit up to 10 (I would say 8 but depends on your conform level). Most of us ordered the prime rib and were very pleased. Great kids...

We just ate there about 20 minutes ago and it was delicious. I had the broiled scallops and my husband had blackened mahi & shrimp, both awesome dishes. Our two sons ordered off the kids menu and their fish and shrimp was also delicious! Out waiter Geoff was very attentive and friendly. Beautiful atmosphere. Staff was great! Will definitely go...
