My friend was gushing about this place so of course we had to go. It was pretty good. 50cent oysters and great shrimp specials. They had amazing drinks as well. Will definitely be going back.

This used to be one of my favorite places for sandwiches when going boating but now it's just average. The staff can be nice but they can also be surly and the prices are pretty high. The food is fine but nothing exceptional. If you are in that end of the Island and need quick food, it's ok but don't... More

Yes, yes & yes! This place rocks. Amazing happy hour, oysters and drinks. The staff here is extremely knowledgable and friendly, it's hard to actually leave this place.

The menu is rather limited to say the least, and what I did have was not very memorable. My wife had... More

If you want to sit down and relax, before or after Happy Hour on the waterfront, this is the spot. Allie, the bartender, makes the best Key Lime martinis on the island, and Manager, William Smith offers personable service in a sophisticated setting.
