The outdoor tiki bar gets heavy traffic. It seems always busy. Good chips and salsa. The Verde chicken enchilada was great. We heard the deep fried cheesecake was great but didn't try it. The house margarita was big and tasty. Would go back.

Visited this restaurant on a family trip to Jekyll and was not disappointed. Arrived around 6:15 on a Tuesday and seated pretty quickly. Server was friendly and helpful. Food arrived after a short wait. Blackened shrimp, although small, were very good. Creamed corn, squash casserole,...More

The seen Vice and food were both fantastic, in spite of 19 total in our group. Our service was provided by, 5002 Adolphus. He was always congenial and never once complained about our large group. Highly recommend for excellent food and service.
