The smoked oysters are the only reason this place gets 5 starts. Holy smokes, amazing. The gentleman smoking them was so kind and really accommodating.

You know you have the best location on the island. You have the potential to be great. I know you probably depend on the one and done tourist. But I live here. Year round. So I'm your customary January and February. Been to your bar many times and it's always a pleasure. Try to give you my business for dinner... More

I've got mixed feelings about our Easter Sunday Brunch the other day. Let's start with the good - The food was absolutely wonderful and cooked to perfection. 3 meat choices offered - Prime Rib, Honey Ham and Baked Chicken. We had the Prime and Ham. The sides consisted of well prepared Brussel Sprouts, Mac & Cheese, Creamed Spinach, and Garlic... More

Covered parking on ground floor entrance of a small condo type building. Take elevator to top floor (handicapped accessible). Nice outdoor seating area with seaside views and there is an indoor area. There can be a stiff breeze high up so choose your seating accordingly. Server was pleasant and good. The food, however, was horrible. No kidding. I rarely burn... More

Love everything about this place. The short rib dinner and sandwich are to die for. Also, loved the appetizers and the spinach salad with shrimp added. Pricey, but worth it. Great waiters/bartenders and have great music several nights a week. Fab views of ocean and comfy seating in and out. A must go to place.

2 servers for the whole place, took 40 minutes to get appetizers after ordering them. They were good. Server never came back to see if we wanted to order more drinks. We had to ask. Took over an hour after we ordered our main courses to get our meal and again we had to ask. Our waitress was busy but... More

Service was not very good: poor delivery coordination of courses; silverware never changed out for courses; drink order was very slow; refills slow; food was not very imaginative; shrimp scampi was more of a cream lemon sauce...no garlic and swimming in the sauce; filet was of fair quality but with nice sauce; very average Caesar. Disappointing and will not return... More

This was our last night on the island. The view was spectacular as was the food. Service was great. The waiter was very personable. You HAVE to get their key lime pie for dessert!

We happened upon this place while on the island and were very pleased with everything about it. First the Ambiance was amazing! Views were awesome and the decor was upscale. The service was great starting with complimentary valet who was a charming person. The host was personable and pleasant and our waitress was very good at her job. The food... More

We only had drinks at the bar but it's worth the view! Holly, bartender, was the friendliest and made awesome drinks!
