Stopped in for an early dinner, since we had missed lunch, and were the only people there. Somewhat off-beat, interesting and slightly eclectic menu but they were out of some things we thought we'd like to try. Service was slow considering it was only the 3 of us and we didn't order anything that require long prep times. Food fairly good but not as good as we expected based on reviews. Crab beignets were excellent.

Went to back porch first time 13 years ago. It was great! Have been numerous times since. Always very good. Not sure what has happened but the service was poor and the food was a disappointment. Too bad, as there are not many choices for "nice" on the island.

Read the reviews before going and had relatively high expectations. Was seated in the screened porch area which was nice, but not at all like the photo posted. Friendly attentive server. The bread arrived frozen, not cold, frozen. Not sure how it escaped notice since it was a small sliced loaf but it did. Promptly taken back, nuked, and returned. Sort of expected a new loaf but not a big deal. Entrees were ok but hardly seemed excellent as others reviewed them. Would try others before returning here.

Very nice restaurant with friendly staff and nice selections of fresh food. Full bar available which was very nice since it was across from our accommodations
