Went off season. Food was good and service was great, just expected a little larger menu. Would have liked more than six choices.

We went after waiting for over 40 minutes to be seated at the Daymark and never were we decided to keep a reservation at the Arlington that we had at there. We should have gone elsewhere.

We live on the mainland, and frequent this place all year round....weekly. We bring everyone we know here because the beers are fantastic and different and the bar food is spectacular.

Loved the A the first time I ate there in April. The next three trips the food was really inconsistent. Not necessarily bad, but different, like there are different chefs on different days working with "recipes" that are lacking. Will give it another shot in the off season as there aren't a lot of places open. Fun bar.
