Thank you so much for your review! Wish we had more room for different draft beers. We do have a nice selection of bottle beers.

Stopped for dinner while on the island for a few days and we were blown away! The food was awesome, service very good but the Bloody Mary took the cake!! It was totally worth the visit and we will be going back many more times.

Service was excellent, atmosphere was fun yet relaxing, and the food was delicious! The menu left me wanting to try everything on it! I opted for the Pistachio Crusted Whitefish and it was very good.

The service, food and drinks were very good but the food was spendy. Typical for being on the island where everything has to be brought in by boat. The staff was attentive and friendly, also not as busy being just of the main road.
