Alby's, as it's referred to by locals, serves up burgers that sounded delicious, but we had already eaten. We stopped there shortly before leaving the island for some ice cream which sounded really good at the time.

I got just a simple strawberry shake and with the $6.50 it cost me, I was expecting something spectacular so was disappointed when it tasted just like the same old shake you'd get at McDonald's. I love ice cream, but there was nothing about this ice cream that justified paying $6.50.

The menu may come off as a bit pricey, but let's face it, you're on an island! For what you pay the food quality is WELL worth it. Premium burgers and hot dogs!

This is a must stop for us on our trips to the island. The hamburgers and milkshakes are wonderful. Sitting at the picnic tables with other folks adds to the experience.

Enjoyed our stop at the "Alby" as it's nick named. Huge portions of everything and something for everyone. Very family friendly, and family owned.

My Family and I all ordered the Alby burger and it was one of the best Burgers I've ever tasted. Very juicy and good. This is not fast food, it takes awhile to get your order, but it is worth the wait. We will be back for sure.
