My husband had a BLT and it was loaded with good quality bacon. I had a turkey sandwich (deli turkey). It was good, piled high with turkey.

This is a great place to eat lunch. They have a nice courtyard for eating outside, and their sandwiches are delicious. I ate there twice, once having a BLT and the other time a pulled pork sandwich. The second was so big I shared it with my husband and we were both satisfied. And don't forget to grab one of... More

Really good BBQ and very friendly service. We were checking in to the Hampton Inn &Suites which is nearby and were lured by the aroma of good smoked pork.

Great BBQ. The bun had a small soggy part but I think that was from the pickle juice in the basket. I tried one of the homemaid cookies this visit and it was delicious!!!

This was our first experience on the island and it was a good one. Friendly staff. Great sandwiches but the best was the chocolate chunk cookie! YUM! We ate there sitting in courtyard. Very pleasant. It is one of those places where you order at counter and then they bring it to you. Highly recommend

Great little quiet place. Sandwiches are pretty good and I like the idea of sitting outside under all of the trees on a Saturday afternoon.. My classic place to go to on a weekend when I want a good Turkey on Croissant..
