Lunch on our first day on the island was delicious. Had the bisque and crab salad, hubby had the fried shrimp. Fried shrimp was the most tender ever, Service food and décor were all stellar.

I asked for a mahi platter, it came overly buttery and well done. Parmesan rice wasn’t really a risotto alla parmigiana. Service was really nice and courteous. Location feels quite dated. Worn carpets, seats, etc.
