Great place to eat! The chef was amazing. Hands down the best pasta I have ever had! It's one of those dishes you crave and know it will be a while before you get to have it again. I got it with blackened shrimp! Perfect...More

Our family ate their last Friday night. While not inexpensive, we had a wonderful meal. My husband isn't a seafood person, so he chose the filet. It was huge and cooked to perfection. He said one of the best he'd ever had. I had the...More

The food here is excellent. Their grouper is to die for, but quite pricey. There is little to no ambience and the wait staff was so-so. They do have a full service bar and some out door seating. Small restaurant that does require reservations

We stopped here for lunch and we loved it. It's an open deck and we found a table at the beach level and it was lovely. The menu is not very extensive but the location is perfect and the food and service is good.

We had dinner here for NYE at the BR and it was awesome. Jenny, her daughter and the whole crew were really nice. The chicken marsala and grouper were amazing, and the beer/wine selection was on point. They also have a full bar!

Our menu is largely gluten free. Items that are not can be made gluten free upon request (except pasta). There is no specific dress code- "island casual" is fine.
