We decided to try this place based upon a recommendation in travel book. Sorry we wasted a meal here. The atmosphere is typical cheap bar feel, with tons of dollar bills tacked to the walls and ceiling. We started with the wontons. Mistake. I tried...More

Last night in town and we needed something more than seafood. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger, medium and it came with house fries. Portions were spot on, we were full but not 'heavy'. The atmosphere was fun and quirky, with a mix of locals and...More

Its a bar with an island flair, stopped for lunch and loved the food. Irene runs the place with the personality of an owner. Kudos for quick food at very reasonable pricing and fresh, fresh that you can taste!

My hubby and I decided to have dinner here and we are glad that we did. My hubby got a fish melt and I had fish and chips and both were amazing. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Service was friendly. We would go back.

We went to this little bar and grill on the advice of a guide book. No. No. No. Great cold beer on tap but surly service, greasy fish, and waffle French fries from a freezer bag.

Not sure if others were reviewing the same place. Not clean. Service marginal at best. Long wait for food. Undercooked fish. Did I say not clean - understatement. Never again!

One server for the whole place. Not a big place but definitely too big for one person. Food was average...nothing special. We had just arrived and needed to eat before we got groceries. Got fish tacos for husband and fish and chips for myself. Average...More
