A wonderful meal. Service was outstanding, food was not only a great value but fantastic. Largest calamari plate I have ever seen in the islands. Pierogies and stuffed cabbage rolls....yum.

Desert and great coffee.

We had some appetizers which were good, drinks were very good but the live Jazz was fantastic! We were told this entertainment is only on Friday evenings. It was an easy listening kind of jazz and the singer's tone was sexy and smooth! Wish they played every night! This is an upper restaurant/ lounge. The restaurant had a nice bar and tables with candles and also a few on an outdoor patio. The dinners being served looked good, prices reasonable but we were not out for a full dinner.

Very nice food, and they were accomodating when we wanted to order from the lunch menu at 6pm. Right in the thick of things. Fun place.

My wife and I arrived early on Friday evening, and were warmly greeted and shown to one of two outside tables. We got some great recommendations by a knowledgeable and helpful server, and we enjoyed a frozen drink overlooking the harbor of Charlotte Amalie while we waited for our food. Because we were so early, both our server and the owner stopped by a few times to ask us about ourselves and to share with us their experiences on the island (almost EVERYone is a transplant). We split the calamari, which was well prepared and had a very tasty dipping sauce, which always makes or breaks calamari as long as it's not overdone. We also split the Mahi Mahi special, and even though there was a plate splitting charge of $3, we got a little more food than usual and were definitely satisfied and full. The service was outstanding, and prices were fair.

The nice change was that Friday nights are live Jazz night here. After dinner, we grabbed a couple seats at the bar and listened to a couple hours of jazz while enjoying the libations and the bustling crowd. It was a different dining experience than we had anywhere else in the VI, and it was another great night for me and the Mrs.

Keep up the good work, Martha!
