This is a lovely little unassuming spot on the beach in Island Harbor. You can watch the fishing boats bobbing around in the harbor and have the best rum punch on the island. The lobsters are also delicious and reasonably priced. A must visit!

We came to this side of the island on our last day and fell in love. Apparently the day before we went there were boat races and such going on in the harbor.

Fabulous little local place...nothing fancy but the BBQ ribs and chicken are to die for...best we've had on the island...meat falls off the bone. Friendly local hangout...cold beverages too! If you're looking for local charm this is it.
