Went here for breakfast with my picky eater girlfriends. We all enjoyed our meals. Banana, pineapple, mac nut pancakes were great, minus the pineapple, too much for me. Great service.

This was our second time eating here for breakfast...and it was better than the first time. Service is decent, the meals are good but we’ve had much better on the island.

The view is magnificent; the service is friendly, but uneven. We were a party of 8, and one of us was served 25 min. after everyone else had been served. The waitress explained that they had delivered her entree to another guest by mistake! Another...More
