Nothing too bad to say, nothing good either. The food was very so-so, as was the menu and service. I will probably never go back.

I can't believe how long it takes for you to get your meal!!! They cook one thing a a time, never bring drinks to your table and make you feel like you're putting them out by asking. On the up side the food is fantastic!! That's why I keep going back 😉

We were told by locals to check this place out if we were okay with seafood that has been battered and fried. We thought we'd give it a try. It is definitely greasy, but it was tasty. The serving size was pretty disappointing, though. We ordered a platter to share and it wasn't nearly enough for two. The price was... More

Waitress drops our menus in front of us, rude the entire time, and once we order (the seafood chowder was not available) she never comes back to ask if we want water or coffee or anything. We wait for 45 minutes before checking to see how things were going - they hadn't even started cooking our food, but had already... More

A waitress finally came out and started to clear off all of the empty tables but still did not acknowledge us!!!!!! Finally she asked if we... More

The worst waitress ever. She stayed in the back giggling most of the time with one of the cooks. The owner was there cooking apparently. I asked if we served ourselves if we wanted coffee and she said, "If you want." That was her reply also to a question about the menu. I think I asked if we can have... More

Attempted to eat breakfast here but after waiting an hour we asked if they had started our meal, which they had not, so we decided to leave. Offered to pay for our coffee and the waitress replied with " just get out of here!"

We had lunch at the Sea Shell while waiting for the ferry. It is quite a plain place, sort of like the dining room you'd go to at camp when you were a kid, but the waiter was very pleasant and the fish and chips were excellent. There were lots of locals enjoying it, it was clean and neat and... More

We stopped here an hour before the ferry departure wanting to get a quick bite before we left the island. The waitress was very rude when I asked for a menu ( she tossed it at me). Yes they do take out but an hour is not enough time??? This restaurant is located right across from the parking lot waiting... More

Friends took me there for dinner. It is a very busy restaurant, especially with the locals. Great location near the ferry landing, They have a lot of choices on the menu. We had fried fish with a Caesar salad and it was very good.
