Great place we always visit when on the island.

Will they be open between Christmas and New Years?

This place hsa been known to locals since 1944. We just found and it is great! Everything is homemade and they even still grind their own meat...wow. From shrimp, to burgers it's awesome!

“Casually cool”
Reviewed June 27, 2009

Sort of like a diner. Cash only. Pool table and video games. Super casual.
Food is limited and simple. It has a counter bar, but it bright like a cafeteria. Hard to explain, kind of felt like I was in someone's fixed up basement.

“Glad we took a recommendation”
Reviewed May 4, 2009

A friend recommended this "locals" restaurant. it's not hard to find, but you would drive right past it if you weren't looking for it. Decor is not impressive, but it has loads of "atmosphere". Mr. and Mrs Puchetti (and Larry) welcomed us. I was told the shrimp and spaghetti were great. The shrimp is fresh (of course), hand peeled, and breaded. The spaghetti with meat sauce was very good and portions are ample. You'll find good food, friendly faces, and reasonable prices. By the way, this is a bar but very family friendly.
