Nice little casual diner, serving fried seafood fare with two locations on the island. Nothing special, Food below average unless you like fried seafood then this is the place for you. Bar has a good buzz around happy hour.

Great food. A place you get basic food cooked really well. If you want fancy, wrong place. If you want consistently fresh, tasty food, do come here. Bring your fresh catch and have it cooked over the mesquite grill. Had a red fish cooked like...More

Honestly I wasn't all that impressed. Food was ok but nothing special, prices are a bit high for what you get and even for being on a tourist island. $4.00 for a small domestic draft beer..... No Oysters while we were there and that's no...More
