“Very good!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

My favorite place to eat on the island! They used to let you write on a dollar bill and put them up on the wall but the new owners took all the bills down and donated them to charity. They still allow you to put bills up but they take them down at regular intervals and donate them. The conch fritters are incredible. The jerk chicken is as well. The key lime pie is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I would say the biggest negative is the parking. There is none. You can not park in front of the restaurant like you used to be able to. I had to circle the block 3 times and was lucky enough to find a spot in a public lot about a block away. The night we were there, they had live music as well. Nice evening!

“Good, but not as good as it was....”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This has always been on our list of favourites while staying on Longboat Key. Unfortunately it seems to have lost the old spark under the new management....hard to put a finger on exactly why as the menu is pretty much the same and they still serve Carib and Kalik.....hopefully it will bounce back!

This restaurant was average. Food was okay but nothing special. The staff was very nice and service was good. Would not recommend this restaurant.
