We went here for breakfast the first day we arrived on the island. This is a must go to place. The food is fantastic, and the drinks are so fun! I got a Seabiscuit's Bloody n Beer Shooter and the Olde Smokehouse breakfast. The meal was great, the smoked hickory molasses bacon is AMAZING! To this day it is the... More

Good view... excellent service. Cocktails were very good, food was as well. It was hot that day, and sipping a few drinks with some light food was a perfect way to take a break from all the walking and sun.

We were visiting during the off season so the restaurant was still in operation while we visited but was to close for the season the week after, so they had a small limited menu at the time. Food was pretty good, and the waitresses were really nice and informative when we asked them suggestions on what to do on the... More

went here for lunch..got a sandwich which the menu said was overstuffed but it wasn't. Horses and carriages park out front and everyone knows they are followed by flies and this restaurant had both of their front doors propped open and of course we had to fight the flies for our food..never again..

We stopped at Seabiscuit after hiking all morning. The servers were very attentive and sensed very quickly that we were hot and tired and quickly brought our drinks. Our burgers came in just a few minutes and were very good. The bartender came over and asked where we were from and chatted a bit. If this was a local place... More

Food and service was great. Staff was very friendly. We had breakfast here and returned later in the day for drinks and watching a little football. We have been here several times over the last few years and it never disappoints.

We were there the third weekend of October. The place went from slow to busy. But, the staff was very good at quickly getting people seated and served. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and I had a Sloppy Joe with fries. Both were flavorful. The servers were excellent. It was Halloween for the Island. The restaurant was decorated... More
