“Great Food, Service Staff Excellent”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had stopped there for lunch a few days before New Year's Eve and it was very good. Being on Island Time we forgot about New Year's Eve. We headed there and was seated and at first the server (Albert) had mentioned that the kitchen was closed as they were preparing all the goodies for the New Year's Eve Buffet. The buffet did not offer any vegetarian options, so we figured we would have a few drinks and then move to another place.
In the interim, our server talked with the manager and had the kitchen reopened so that we could have a couple veggie meals. Needless to say we did not have to go find antoher place to eat.
This was fantastic, we were able to enjoy the buffet as well as have veggie meal.
Their drinks were fantastic, not usually into sweet drinks but you gotta try the Banana Split.

Will definitely return to this place.

Reviewed December 30, 2012

The manager was nice... the bean dip was awesome... get got it 2 or 3 times. The service was generally fine... it just isn't our favorite beach that we have been too.

“Good food at a good price!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

The food was very good at a good price, especially since the location is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Fun for the whole family with fun activities every night (fire dancers, crab races, karaoke, quiz night, movie night, etc.). Also, very affordable specials every night. You won't be disappointed!
