I thought this place would be a lot more expensive, but there are meals for all budgets. Start with an appetizer, go cheap with the burger sliders or chips and guacamole, for $8.50. Or spice it up a bit with Lobster Mac and cheese for $14. There's sandwiches in the $13 to 18 range, and burgers from $12 to 14. Entrees go from $16.50 for tacos to $29 for filet mignon. I highly recommend the Pineapple Creme Brulee for dessert, $9. When we were there on Thursday, there was live music, but not so loud we couldn't talk normally. It's a nice atmosphere and there was no wait around 6pm.

After making some last minute vacation purchases we decided to have lunch at the "Island Grille". Our server was outstanding, he took our drink and food orders promptly. In short order our food was served. The entrees were Roasted Chicken Chopped Salad and a Cuban Sandwich - both were excellent. However; the highlight of the visit was the Key Lime Pie we shared for dessert. This is by far the best Key Lime Pie west of Gilbert's 17th Street Grill in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

We stopped in for a glass of wine and appetizers, and the staff was very accommodating. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, and the glass wine selection was interesting.

Start your visit with Bloody Mary's and be sure you have made reservations. One person had fish and chips, one had grilled chicken Cobb salad, one had the tomato bisque and grilled cheese sandwich (the best comfort food) and one blue lump crab salad.

Presentation of each of the dishes was perfect. Even the french fries were cut in triangles on the fish and chips plate. It was served with a very spicy dipping sauce and the tartar sauce was very good. Tempura batter was crispy light. On the chicken Cobb salad the vegetables were fresh and the kale was not overpowering in flavor.

Overall good food and free parking right in front.
