Not a lot of options on the menu because we are here end of season, but everything we ordered was amazing. Fish sandwich and burger with fries! Also had squash soup that was great. Waitstaff super sweet.

We have been to this cafe numerous times over the years and it has always provided excellent food and service. The gentleman that works the bar and may be the owner is always friendly and engaging. The wait staff is professional and very attentive. Nothing is cheap on the island but their prices are competitive.

I had the whitefish Reuben and my wife had the pulled pork. We also had souls and the cheddar beer and the tomato basil were both just simply delicious. Great place.

We stopped in for a drink while we waited for our room to be ready. The Bloody Mary was delicious. It was a little pricey. Service was fantastic

After a very long and strenuous day of biking and hiking, we were both famished. The Patty Melt and Po Boy Pork with mac and cheese absolutely hit the spot! This is a cozy and friendly spot with great service and delicious basic American food. The menu is not huge but the food was cooked to perfection.

The appetizers we ordered were delicious! Since it was late in the season, the menu was pretty limited, but plenty of vegetarian options for us. We spoiled ourselves with the Mac n Cheese bites and some beer cheese. I'd recommend either (or both)! We really enjoyed the decor inside and especially appreciated the Halloween decorations they had. We really liked... More

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was expecting Seabiscuit Cafe to be better than it was. The venue is quaint and lovely on the inside and we were seated in a timely manner. The mac and cheese bowl with pork barbecue was tasty, but the fish tacos were tasteless and the side tortilla chips were stale. For the price,... More

Our group had the best experience. The cutest elderly hostess Nancy. Our waitress Liz. Our food was over the top delicious. Our experience was so great we had to go back for a quick bloody mary and lunch on the day we left the island!

I would say that this restaurant was good but not the best on the island. They were out of alot of things on the menu and there wasn't a very big beer selection. Maybe since it was close to the end of the season. I would give it a try earlier in the season to see if it is any... More
