We sat here long enough to drink a beer and then took our fish platter to go as we left on the ferry. The bluefish was fried perfectly, barely breaded, and very tasty. Hushpuppies were also good. They do not serve liquor (go to Jolly Roger for your daiquiris), but they will fix you a mimosa if you'd like something other than beer.

It's a small joint and shares a bathroom with the harbor. Great bartender.

This little grill is right on the harbor at Silver Lake in the village where there is alot going on. You can have a sandwich made with the frest catch of the day and a beer of your choice while sitting outside on the dock watching the boats and looking at the beautiful sunset reflect in Silver Lake!

My husband and I got a chance to try the burgers. Even though we arrives after the kitchen was closing we were still served by the friendly bartender. The food was very good and the beer cold! We had a very nice time chatting with other patrons at the bar while waiting for our food. The burgers were delicious as were the fries, but the best part were the hush puppies we ordered also. Definitely will go back for the friendliness and the yummy food next time on the island!

Super-friendly waitress/bartender. Great atmosphere and right on the water. Be sure to get the onion rings - they were fantastic!

My husband and I ordered some form of burger, mine cooked medium well, his medium. They both came raw. I sent mine back to be cooked more, which they did. My husband ate most of his but finally quit because it was just too raw.
