We decided to try it based on the good reviews. We will defiantly go again. We were met at the door. Asked if we wanted inside or out. We went with the out even though it's June 1st and wasn't sorry. It's entirely shaded with a very nice breeze and fans and at no time were we hot or regretted it.
The wind did tend to blow napkins and such around. So if that bothers you, sit inside.
The menu has something for most people.
While trying to decide on what to have for lunch, we tried the coconut breaded fried onion pieces. They arrived hot and delicious. They are sweet and the accompanied sauce even sweeter. But I really loved them.
I ordered the lobster and crab cake sandwich. Waitress suggested sautéed over the fried. I went with that on the toasted jalapeño bun. Delicious!!!
I partner went with the fried fish and chips. Plenty of both fish and crispy fries!
Waitress very attentive during the stay.
We will certainly return again to try some of the other wonderful choices!!

We went based on the opinion of others that had visited. When we arrived, we were greeted by two hostesses. One had an attitude an threw a stack of menus on the stand, the other told us it would be 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, we watched group after group of people come in, and the wait time went up to 45 minutes, so the hostess would say there's no waiting in the back, so you can seat yourselves. We watched about 40 people go to the back and no doubt get served before us. We considered it, but it was too loud for the kids, and I didn't want them in a bar environment anyway. Our 20 minute wait turned into 45 when we finally asked the hostess what was going on, she said they had a table for us, but the manager wouldn't let them serve anyone else because the kitchen couldn't keep up! I wonder why?! Because they were serving everyone in the bar! They had no intention of trying to help us, apologize, or make it better, so we left. Will not be returning.

We ate here while on vacation and the food was excellent! Waitress was very friendly and did a great job! Highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops - they were worth the trip! We only had them as appetizers but they serve them as a meal too. Would go back and have them as meal! Atmosphere was great and live music was entertaining.
