Nice environment and really good food. Pet friendly on the patio too. 😊 A little more sophisticated for Port A.

We arrived about 6:30 or so on Saturday. Stood at the sign that stated, "Please Wait Here to be Seated" , next to the guy smoking, for about 5-7 minutes. The guy smoking left, so I kinda walked around a bit, someone said they'd be "right" with us. Waited a little longer, got a glance at the menu, which didn't... More

This is by far our favorite place to eat on the island. We travel with two picky "fresh food" eating kids and they love this place. Sitting outside offers a wonderful breeze and shops to visit while you wait for your food. Inside is a little more fancy and my kids enjoy watching the sushi chef at the counter. You... More

We had sushi, many varieties, including the children, and the children also had the fish plate. The service was good. Our first bottle of wine was not cold, but he second one was, just had to wait awhile for it. Sushi was exceptional!

We arrived at 6:00 about 30 minutes after they opened. The parking lot was basically empty. We walked up to the hostess who is positioned outside by the front door. She looked our 4year old son up and down and didn't even say Hello to us. She just stood there. I said "Three for dinner, inside please." She said, "... More

I had a sandwich on grilled foccacia bread that was fantastic. The sweet potato fries were some of the best I've ever eaten. My friends both had a chicken salad and they must have enjoyed it by the looks of their empty plates. The serving sizes were large on all of our dishes and the service was good. One note,... More

we ate there on Mother's Day and had a very nice meal. I've never had anything I didn't like. The sweet potato fries are the best I ever ate!!! My wife likes the pecan crusted chicken salad & I like their steak, it's always good. Also the Reuben sandwich is excellent..

We have tried dozens of restaurants in Port A but this is the only place we keep coming back to. Everything is great here. Truffle fries, fish, pasta, all were great!

We enjoyed a late evening dinner yesterday after some beach time. Our large party enjoyed all entrees that were ordered. Some had sushi that got rave reviews--the scorpion was a huge hit!! Others tried fish dishes which were fresh and delicious. Our gluten-free guest had just about the whole menu to choose from! She was thrilled. Everything was made to... More

This is one of the few places that I would recommend you take your date. Not only will you impress her with a nice restaurant, but you will get quality treatment. The wine selection is great and the food is of utmost quality.
