The service here was great - we had a club house sandwich and a fish dinner, both were excellent. The prices were reasonable and the beer was cold. What more can you ask for.

I had spare ribs and partner chicken. With a salad we couldn't finish the food. Big portions and good food although chicken a little dry , very good and great value for money. I would definitely go back

We ordered a ton of food here, as we were tired of the food at our resort. It was all good. Also the daiquiris were great and we each had a couple.

Amazingly awesome food,,,think Rincon, PR or St Maartin! Service is slow but extremely friendly. The only complaint I have was the absence of soap in the bathroom. Hopefully this was a one time issue as I believe the kitchen and waitstaff use the same bathroom....More

We grabbed a few drinks here and were happy with the services / prices. They had American football on TV which was a nice bonus.

The restaurant is very close, just about 5 minutes by taxi. If you ask your waitress for a taxi to return to the hotel, she can probably find you one for less than $15.
