The food was great however, the service was exceptionally slow. It was our first night on the island and we were very hungry. The food was very good however, our server didn't refill drinks and our food took over an hour.

Underwhelmed. While our food tasted great, it was not hot at all... barely warm. We commented to our server who promptly sent over the manager. She was quite pleasant and comped us dessert and appropriately discounted our bill. Server, bartender and hostess were very friendly...More

Only been there once quite awhile ago. Wanted to go back several times after that but they were closed for remodeling. We didn't get there this last time but will go again in May 2019.

Serious attitude problem from the hostess. I walked in around 7:30pm and asked for a table for 6. I was told they were too busy and wouldn't be able to seat us this evening. When I asked if they could split the group to 2...More
