If you're looking for top end then the Sugar Mill is the place to go. Not cheap but the quality of the food is worth it. Fantastic location. My only negative was that the service was a little slow at times

Every night was a new adventure! The open-air restaurant overlooks the ocean. The bar is well appointed and Theresa can make you any drink you desire. The food is absolutely fabulous - we tried something new every night, but we had conch fritters EVERY NIGHT!

Food was excellent and served in a timely manner. You we allowed to enjoy the ambiance, good friends, and relax without any pressure to "turn the table" The Scallops were phenomenal.
