Lousy reservation system! No communication between employees. We had to wait 1.5 hours beside free tables. Afterwards we were not noticed and after 10 min we could make our first order. Which then took 10 minutes. Food was ok but too expensive.

Great food and service, you can also come on a karaoke night or when they have live music. The HBI is a real island pub with lots of locals and a friendly feel. We had a blast at karaoke!

Thank you for your feedback. The pub kitchen is shared with the dining room. If one room is busy it can slow down service in the other. This should have been communicated to you. Our apologies. If you would like to talk to management please...More

Great restaurant with very good fish and chips. Great view of the marina, great for couples or families. The food and drinks were great all around. Great place to kick back and enjoy a delicious meal and cold bevvies while enjoying the scenery

I am sorry to hear this. I hope you let your server know and they were able to correct this for you. It seems very out of the ordinary a well done steak would come out rare unless it was a order mix up. If you feel this is... More
