“Exceptional Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

We had the Buffalo Shrimp appetizer, exceptional large size and preparation. Mild sauce was stronger that expected, but suitable. We thought the sour dough bread server with dinner was great, we got a second loaf. We had the blackened Mahi special (topped with three shrimp in cream sauce), Drunken Grouper, and Shrimp dinners. All were very tasteful, served hot. The server was not as attentive as we expected, but the food more than compensated. We would return.

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food was uneven here. My grouper sandwich was heavy with an overly-think slice of raw onion. The tuna nachos were okay but we didn't finish them--perhaps too large a portion, better shared by a group than a couple. Service was moderately slow on a Sunday afternoon. The place wasn't bad but I wouldn't go back.

“Best meal of our vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Wow!! Three words BEEF ON WECK!! My husband and I have been to George and Wendys a couple of times in the past and have been relatively happy with our meals but this time I ordered the beef on weck and it was amazing. You know a meal is good when a). You think about that meal all day long and continue to bring it up everytime your husband asks you what your thinking about. B). You try to rearrange your vacation so that you can come back again and C). You make a plan to get hired on staff there when you retire so you can learn the secret recipe.
I should also mention the hostess at the door made us feel very welcomed and the service was wonderful.
So glad we found this little gem on the island and that meal!

“Great Sports Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is our default place. Whenever we can't decide where to go, let's go to George and Wendy's. The bar scene is very lively and the bartenders very friendly. Great spot for first time visitors and for natives. For NFL games the bar is packed and lively.
Food is very good with many of the fish dishes being excellent. This is a very casual place for families. Also have live music which is fun.

“Came back again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We came back again on our return visit! Just as good as last year! The wings are true buffalo wings. Amazing flavor! We ate a bunch of appetizers this time and all were to die for. Love this place! Great good at a good price!
