I got the squid steak for my meal which I had never had before and was good. They gave me two steaks which was a lot. Small and quaint restaurant and service was good and... More

The food is always good. Carribean style. Fish is very fresh. The restaurant is on the small side, no reservations. You can wait at the bar if seat is available!

My husband and I stopped in for dinner on a Monday, night and were pleasantly pleased. Our waitress was Nicki and she was a ball of energy, sweetness and efficiency. She worked the restaurant like a seasoned veteran making her customers happy. We had a fried lobster sandwich, grilled yellowtail snapper with black beans and a loaded baked potato w/real... More

Second visit here. Delicious again. The cutters (Caribbean sandwich) are great. Sliced pork, roast beef and Calypso are all outstanding. The fish and chips are beer battered and delicious as well. It looks like a hole in the wall, but it is great.

What a surprise to find. Oysters were fresh and delish. You gotta try the fried plantains, calamari, lamb curry, and key lime pie. Our definite go to place for Caribbean flavors.
