Myself, husband, daughter, SIL AND 2 grandsons ate here the week of Thanksgiving. They were very busy and we had to wait 30-40 mins. But it was definitely worth the wait. Food and service were both very good! I had yucatan shrimp and beach bread---sooo good!

This conveniently located restaurant had excellent food and service.We were lucky to get a table in their garden area which made for a real tropical treat. Prices were moderate for the island.

I had a roast beef taco that was the special of the day. Was great. Partner had the seviche cocktail and shrimp boil - which he enjoyed.

This was a nice place to eat, but nothing was overly memorable.

We had dinner here three times this week and each one was delicious. We had their specials a couple of times which were excellent. We're from Kansas City (home of beef) and Doc's ribeye is always a great choice. All the appetizers are good from the calamari to the ahi tuna to the shrimp quesadillas. Add a mojito and what else could you want?

We had lunch here mid December and had the Fish Sandwich. It was super tasty. Loads of fish, fab slaw and black beans and rice side highly recommended. The bread roll holding the fish was a bit flimsy, great tasting bread but not substantial enough to 'hold' the fish through the entire eating..... Both rolls collapsed ..... ?? But not to detract from a great meal. Lovely, attentive service and well priced.
