We loved this place! It's tiny but it's fun! Island themed decor, lots of Buffett music and good food! Lots of space to have a pina colada while waiting for a table. The place is on the lake, but unfortunately there is no outdoor seating...More

Very good food and service. Get's busy, make a reservation if you want a table. I was expecting typical bar food -- not the case. Grouper sandwich was delicious, side salad very fresh. Definitely not bar food. Also, very clean.
