Off the tourist strip and frequented by locals, my niece who lives in the area suggested the Korner Pocket for dinner. We enjoyed the laid back casual atmosphere and everyone loved their dinner.

I'm super picky and can be a difficult customer. Cassie handled me just great. I would recommend requesting her if she is working.

You wouldn't know if from the outside, but this this spot has the best food we've found on the Island in 9 months. Great prime rib. Excellent bands. Cool local vibe. Chilled people. Highly recommended.

Ahi Pok Nachos were different. Wanted to try on the advice of a friend. Wonton chips tasted burnt. Ono fish sandwich was over cooked and dry. Fries were great and the beer was cold. Service was slow but they were busy when we got there.
