Our family ate here one morning for breakfast. Loved the tables with the shells under glass. My son and husband each had the original islander breakfast which came with sauteed gator and they LOVED it. All the breakfasts were great and would recommend this restaurant.

My chicken and grape salad was amazing, and the grilled tomatoes were scrumptious!! The service was great. I loved looking at the shells in the table. So interesting! I even brought home some of their blackberry and raspberry jam. Great place to eat!

Yes it is. There is a ramp outside the restaurant to use. It goes to the promenade with the restaurant and stores. They have chairs, which can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair.
