The location on a dock over the bay was perfect and the food was tasty enough. I just happened to arrive during the slow season when they were hosting a kid's birthday party and the service was beyond bad.

We were told this was one of the best places to dine on the island.

After paying for a boat ride to get here... We were able to dine on the deck which was enjoyable, however, at an old and not so clean plastic table and maybe the only "not broken" five plastic chairs available (just enough for the five of us).

I can't remember what everyone ordered, but do remember overall it was just okay. The only dish that looked worth the trip was the whole fried fish, but enen it was over priced for a 6-8" long fish that had little meat after being deep fried.

over the water, local atmosphere, good food but not amazing. Cold and cheap beer and funny people around. We went during a local Baseball match on the TV and it was great to be in a real local bar.

If you're looking for a cheap meal option on the island, Roots is a good place to go. We had their shrimp rice ($12) and it was more than enough food for two people. Also it seems like they're the only place on the island that's open for lunch.
