We had a nice lunch by the fireplace here. It was a cool, rainy day and the fireplace was perfect. We knew that our dinner was planned for the main dining room at the Grand, so just wanted something light. We both had the French Onion Soup and we split one of the signature Pecan Roll desserts. Our soup was... More

They have fresh fish from all over flown to the island. this is unique itself. Overseeing all of the is the excellent maitre'd Onique. During the summer dining outside is delightful. However, the interior is like... More

We ate lunch during our stay on the island. Small salad was perfect size for lunch. It was enjoyable sitting there with views of the golf course, hotel and street traffic. The weather was great so we ate outside at one of the tables with umbrella. Short walk from the hotel and right across the street from Sadies Ice Cream... More

We went as part of a group so we had limited choices. The wait staff was wonderful and remembered our drinks so it was a special place. The food was beautifully presented (appetizer salad of greens and blue cheese and crepe) but the main course of steak and fish was pretty bland. No one really liked the steak because it... More
