Food was really good. I read previous reviews and it stinks your visit wasn't like ours. We had a great lunch, maybe a bit overpriced, but good. I highly recommend the grilled shrimp skewers. They were amazing. The margarita was good, too!

Have you ever gone somewhere, spent a decent amount of cash to feel treated like they were doing you a favor? Bingo! That's this place. Food average and wait staff look like they'd just as soon you go away. Sorry folks but it's tourism that keeps you in business...step it up.

Of course it's a tourist type restaurant, food little overpriced for what you get. Host was nice enough & they weren't that crowded. Read other reviews and can see why staff was described as rude. Didn't think rude, but certainly aren't attentive or friendly.

Ordered shrimp scampi and it was really shrimp with jar alfredo sauce. It was too garlicky, and wrong description of what it was.

Tried a friend's fried fish & it was better but so thin it was dry. Drinks like a bloody mary come in an ice cream sundae glass. Go for the sunset.

Been to this place few times. Ungracious and unwelcomed staff overall. Not a smile in sight. Food, very average, most fried. Plan on dining and paying-I found it overpriced. Also visit when its not mosquito season because it is unbearable. Overcrowded during high season-cant figure out why. There are a few other better quality eateries in island. Im guessing "fishy" smell in ambience normal since it is located by boat dock.
