Disappointing! We looked forward to trying this place. The Happy Hour price for a mixed cocktail was the most expensive of all places on the Island in the last 5 years we've been coming here.

Lively setting on the Bay-indoor or outdoor-1 page menu but all we ordered was good! Shrimp cocktail was loaded w shrimp and tasty. My companion ordered the appetizer combination-more than 1 person could eat! All very tasty. Margaritas were lovely...great on a warm afternoon!

Stale tasting calamari, the smallest oysters I've ever eaten, a cold shrimp salad that was nothing but chopped up boiled eggs with minimal pieces of shrimp! The only redeeming meal we had was the Captain Morgan Shrimp which was spicy but tasty. You definitely don't get your money's worth... More

Excellent food -- both for dinner and for breakfast - and reasonable prices. We also enjoyed the view, and saw several dolphins.

Great beach side dining with dunes right in front of you. Coffee is lousy but food and atmosphere fabulous.
