“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was such a beautiful day to relax on the porch of this restaurant with a view. The owner is a great guy who cared about our comfort and satisfaction. We had lunch inside which was comfortable with a gentle breeze. the Cod Cakes, Caeser Salad & Shrimp Pasta were EXCELLENT. We then continued outside to watch the sun set with a few well-mixed cocktails. What a great day. We'll keep going back over and over to this special hidden gem! Thank you Islander! Keep up the great work! We'll be back in May 2013 for the new season.

“Best lobster roll ever”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Imagine yourself sitting by a beautiful marina, while you enjoy some excellent white wine and a delicious lobster roll
The views from the terrace are so nice that you can risk forgetting about the great food you have in front of you .
Service is just how it has to be , not too fast, not slow .
The dessert that followed was the great finale for a really nice lunch .

“Garbage All Around”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Horrible rude lack of service, dirty glasses, limited menue at best,
overpriced dog food.
Don't waste the trip, the decor is early junk yard, and it is hot very hot.
There are many more places to go and for normal prices.
These idiots are out of touch.

“Awful!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I could not believe how awful this restaurant was. after reading the reviews. Myhusband and I are not picky people but our lunch was just awful. We went there for a late lunch the second week of July, after hearing about the great reviews. We were seated immediately but then it took 30 minutes to be waited on. There were 6 people at the bar and no one else eating. Our waiter came and immediately said do you know what you want? Hello menus please? Then he came back 3 minutes later and said you need to order now the kitchen is closing. Lunch was noted to last until 4pm it was 3.30pm. We both thought the menu was very limited about 6 items........ only. He rushed us so we ordered 2 hamburgers one loaded and one naked as they say. The loaded one was so soggy it fell apart-and the naked one was just ok. On top of it all , the price was 50.00 for 1 beer ,
2 hamburgers and a few dried out chicken wings as an appetizer. Yuck is all I can say. Guess they dont care if they make money??? Never again!
