“Best deal in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Lovely couple running a great restaurant! We had bbq chicken and home made baked beans and went 2 days in a row! The prices are so reasonable and the food is great! It is like dining at a friends house, very comfortable. They make and awesome rum punch and the fried cookie dough dessert is amazing!

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

A just-off-the sidewalk, and yes, in his yard ... this "restaurant" boasts the finest BBQ chicken on the peninsula! Get there early if you want grilled shrimp or snapper!

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

We were told the ribs just ran out and a new batch of chicken was getting put on the smoker. To wait and it would be another 30 minutes. We grabbed a hammock and enjoyed the wait. We grabbed some beers at the store and returned. We enjoyed the hammock. We waited over two hours for that chicken and shrimp kabab and then for the rice to finish in the rice cooker. It was good. The portions were smaller then I was expecting. The atmosphere was great!

“Who would have thought?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

We had just arrived in the afternoon and spent a few hours just walking around and exploring. We were a bit overwhelmed and couldn't really decide on place to eat dinner. But we happened to be on the sidewalk when our hunger became too much. And right there happened to be a guy with a grill and a few tables set up outside his house. No extensive menu, just fish, chicken, and maybe pork. But it was all cooked perfectly and was delicious. And you couldn't beat the price. We spent the next several nights trying to find a place that had fish that was as delicious as here, but nothing compared.
Don't overlook this place!

“Good home style bqq”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Well you relax on the hammocks as the wind blows off the beach you can just smell the amazing meal your about to consume. Some of the finest bqq I've ever had , so good that once I started eating I forgot all about the cold soon to be warm beer on the table . located right off the sidewalk you can smell the grill long before you can see it . A must stop good price at a small family grill .
