Greeted promptly by the hostess as we entered. We dined Saturday evening with no wait even though the dining room was busy. Our server Lindsay was friendly and answered all the questions we had about the menu. Our entrees were served only a few minutes after our salads but all the food was delicious.

One of the best burgers that we've had on the island. They grind their meat fresh daily. Also ask about their daily specials. We have enjoyed the fried green tomato BLT and the black in my he fish sandwich. Friendly staff and also dog friendly.

If you want a delightful lunch place that has a creative chef, stop by Cafe Karibo. It's basically a pub and an interesting one at that.

The food here is good, but the service is just so, so. We had to keep flagging down our wait staff and getting a table was a hot mess as well. For the price of the food I expected better service. But, I did like their food.

Nice outside eating area and we happened in on a beautiful day! Great sandwiches by both of us. I had the restaurant's personal twist on a Cuban Sandwich-delish! My friend loved the lentil salad. Great lunch spot!
