My husband & I biked here for lunch from the Sanctuary Resort and enjoy our lunch and watching some golf. Lots of great options to choose from. We were not disappointed!

We love stopping in for a cocktail and just to enjoy the view from one of our favorite Island places. Comfortable surroundings, excellent service, and views you can't forget :-)

Go for a drink on the porch and savor the beautiful ocean view, but go elsewhere for food. Over priced and average at best.

Hamburger was average. Very noisy. I cannot say it was worth the trouble and expense. Disappointing as one would expect excellent food at the No. 3 rated golf course in the country.
