It was more like a roast beef. Friend had steak and ale pie. Average again nothing special. The fries with the pie were good. Service is... More

We popped in here to escape the downpour. It was like the heavens had literally opened up and what a welcome we got. We sat at the bar because we were soaking and were made to feel very welcome. The bar was full however the service was still very good. This place also has free wifi which was a big... More

I generally don't like eating places that are right off the cruise ship piers, even when there's no ship in port. Too easy to survive on location alone, too much tendency to cater to a standard tourist fare. That's what took us away from the sort of strange place recommended to us (Pusser's), and I was worried about going no... More

During the day there isn't a huge crowd but after the sun goes down it tends to fill up quickly. The first Tuesday of every month they have what's called a "networking" night. Basically all the newbies to the island are supposed to come out and meet people. It's a great time and the people you can meet are amazing.... More

Barbecue done right. They take their time. Sit at the bar and watch them put on the meats and pies. Good drinks.

Service is average. Seating is in a very high ceiling indoor and vegetation covered outdoor and in... More

Just a note that the Saturday hours posted here may not be correct. Based on reviews here, we stopped by Saturday 3/11 and Saturday 3/18 and they were closed both days. Menu boards from Friday were outside both days, so they are open Fridays. We had nice dinners elsewhere, but sorry we missed them. Rated three as a rating is... More
