My hamburger meal was not so good. Pretzel bun, over cooked and over salted. Wouldn't go back. My friend's meal was acceptable. but others was not. There were 8 of us.

The Blue Giraffe is the place to experience casual island dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week from 7am to close. Dine outside in the garden atmosphere of Periwinkle Place or inside at hand-painted tables, inspired by local artists. Our wide-ranging menu is full of fresh and local seafood, island-renowned chowders, custom sandwiches and burgers, refreshing salads, mouth-watering steak and vegetarian options. Unwind at our full liquor bar, sipping on a glass of wine, a frosty draft, bottled beer or one of our signature frozen drinks. As for dessert, indulge in hand-dipped Edy's Grand Ice Cream, or a rich cappuccino. You won't be able to get enough of our delicious island-inspired food, all in a friendly, tropical setting.
