We went here for dinner one night with our 2 kids because it seemed to be a very lively restaurant and appeared to be a restaurant where the locals eat as well. Well, we sat down right away and had high hopes. After being told that they were out of some of their famous side dishes, we ordered our food and drinks and were told that the food would take a while so we should have some shrimp to start and really had to try their johnny cake. So, we waited and 2 of the 4 drinks came some time after the shrimp. The shrimp was good but the diet coke was really flat. No problem, they took it back and ordered wine - don't do that... terrible. Anyhow, we waited patiently for the other 2 drinks... and waited. One came and then we were told they were out of Caribe beer. Ok... my husband ordered another. Then a different waitress came and told us they were out of most of the side dishes (including their traditional rice and peas) and all they had was chicken as a main course. No fish (as I ordered) and no hamburger (as 1 child ordered). Who runs out of hamburgers? By the way, the johnny cake did not come. When we asked why we had to wait 20 minutes or so to be told that they were out of all their food, we were told that the waiter wasn't doing his job. We waited and waited. The other beer came. Anyhow, they seemed totally disorganized and we had no faith that the rest of our meal would come. In the interim, another waitress came by and asked if we had ordered the lobster. Really? No. But, they were likely out of that too. We decided to cut our losses and offered to pay. They didn't charge us - which certainly was the right thing to do. Anyhow, we ended up having a delicious meal at the Blue Martini (2nd of the week). That review will come shortly. Moral of the story? It may be a good lively restaurant (based on the other reviews), but don't take any chances - this is a dinner place for early birds only (we arrived approx 8:30) or those who want atmosphere and no food.
