This was our first meal on the island. Food was YUMMY!! Waiter was very informative with what to do on the island, where to find things, how to get places. Very friendly place and great food.

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. Service was a little slow, but not enough to ruin the experience. They also have a good wine list compared with other casual dining places on the island.

We were part of a group of 20 that reserved for dinner ahead of time. We were glad they could accommodate us but they ended up putting us in a dark scraggly room away from the main restaurant. It had vertical blinds partially ripped down and was right off the pool and in the middle of all the hotel rooms. For the prices they need to fix that. But our waiter was great and the food was good. I would go back there with a smaller group in the restaurant.

After a day of biking and shopping you can work up quite an appetite and thirst. Having tried several of the other pubs on the island in the past, we always go straight to Goodfellow's for some beers and chow. Excellent appetizers which go great while sipping one of the different beers that they have on tap. Their smoked whitefish spread and spinach artichoke dip is outstanding, and the lobster mac and cheese is out of this world. Huge menu and we have never been disappointed. Add to that the excellent help behind the bar, especially Samantha and Erin who go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of. We prefer the more casual room where the bar is, which is where you will get the excellent and friendly service from Samantha and Erin as well as the rest of the staff. There is another room where the atmosphere is a little more formal, but we definitely prefer to sit in the pub where it is more laid back and casual. Friendly atmosphere, excellent food, and in my opinion the best pub on the island. Always look forward to stopping there.

We had dinner here with 2 other couples and were very disappointed. Our waiter was sort of arrogant and it was obvious that he was handling too many tables at once. He was so quick to tell us what a premiere steak house this was and recommended the Chateau Briand for 2 for $89.99. We ordered it and waited quite a while. When it came out, the waiter went to slice it and it looked like he never cut a piece of steak in his life...he was mangling it! We ordered it 'medium' and it was clearly rare. We asked him to put it back on the grill and asked for the manager. The waiter gave us our sides which were cold so we told the manager when he came over as well as expressed our unhappiness with the experience so far. He gave us new sides and was apologetic but when the steak returned it was now overdone...it was clear that they stuck it in the microwave..I couldn't believe it! When the manager returned again we expressed our disappointment and he offered %20 off on our meal. I think they could have done more but was tired of complaining so we ate our meal and left. The other couples who had fish, pizza and pasta dishes stated that they have had better meals at Olive Garden. I will never return to this place. Every other meal we had at other places were wonderful!
