“HUGE portions”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I could have been roilled out of the restaurant! The portions were amazing! The service was fast and friendly. They have a large menu to choose from. I was there later in the night so I could not see the view. The restaurant, however, does sit right on the beach. There was a band and a dancing crowd around 10pm. It was a fun atmosphere! Great food! Good drinks! I would highly reccomend!

“Beautiful scenery while you eat!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Very fun atmosphere to kick back and have a nice dinner by the beach or just sit at the many different bars for a tropical drink-the food was very good with a wide variety of seafood dishes as well as salads or burgers. Prices were about average for vacation meals at a nice restaurant. The Bimini bread was to die for. We will definitely visit this restaurant again when we are back in town.

“Unbelievable food and great friendly service”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch here yesterday while visiting from Manchester. Our waiter Jason recommended the most amazing cocktails to whet our appetite. The stone crab claws and jerk wings were mouth watering. My friend had the most tasty looking chicken salad which we had to finish off for her(lucky us , it was delicious!). And then there was The Ruben, the most heavenly sandwich I have ever had in my life. Moist fresh beef , salad and perfectly presented . The home made fries are legendary. When are you opening up in Uk?

“We liked it so much we went back twice”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good food, good service. Portions big, so if you have young children get 1 portion between them to share.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We sat inside so we didn't have a wait. We were seated at a window tale and the view was absolutely beautiful. The place was jumping with quite a few people at the bar, drinking, dancing and listening to the great live band.
We had to order the Bimini Bread wich was served with honey butter (yummy) and we took more
than half back to the hotel. I had Escargo and my friend had Nachos appetizers both very good.
Was a little dissaponted when the waitress brought our dinners to the table before we were finished with our appetizers.
For dinner I had a Crab Louie salad and my friend had a Seafood Quesadilla and they were good. For dessert we split a slice of Key Lime Pie but it had a pastry crust instead of graham cracker. :~(
