I asked the waitress to make sure my conch was not over cooked. Didn't work. Worst case you would think that it was like jerky, but it was more like cow leather. The hamburgers were dry and over cooked, the salmon was smoked with a great flavor, but again dry and over cooked. The one thing that was good on the menu were the ribs. Melt in your mouth and great flavored sause.

I would never go there again. Owner is the brother of the owner of the Riverside Tavern, but one should be in the restaraunt business, the other should not.

Good service. The manager charged us for one of the three conch meals, and that was fair. The waitress would not have helped at all even after repeatedly asking if everything was ok and repeatedly telling her the conch was crap.

Did I say I would never go there again? Yes, please don't. You will be disappointed.

We stopped here for a long lunch before a flight. Nice location on the water, and a busy spot over the lunch hour. It's open air, and if the breeze off the water is strong the plastic windshields are dropped. Our food was good (burger - pick your size which was great, and a sandwich) and drinks cold. Probably due to the busy lunch hour, but service was a little slow. The restaurant is attractive, with a nice atmosphere.

Great vibe and location, right on the waters edge. The cocktails were good, but the food is only average.

the place is beautiful but the ceiling is not sealed and when it started to rain no matter where you were you got wet....the food came to the table all backwards but it tasted good. The bar staff was very nice but the main bartender didn't seem to understand how to count money. I had to wait for my change and when we got to the table the waitress didn't even seem to understand the order of the daily special....the staff were friendly and inefficient....they seem to lack any type of real training. Mr. Bowen should train his staff. One member of our party got every thing 10 minutes behind everyone else...this continued into food service and the poor fellow was left waiting for his food for the same amount of time past the rest of the table...go for a drink and have low expectations....go with friends that make you laugh!

I went to the Hour bar several times last week. Good food and good people. Say hi to Tifanny behind the bar...love her! A cool place to meet lots of new friends...locals and visitors alike. You won't be disappointed.
