It was an enjoyable evening because we were with friends, but we were not crazy about the food. Our server was very good, very attentive & friendly. He answered all of our questions.

This restaurant is located on an island populated by property owners and resort guests. Others like us take a water taxi from behind Leverocks Restaurant. The taxi is $6 per person and takes 10-12 minutes. We enjoyed the ride over and back. The restaurant is large. The menu for lunch is pretty extensive. Our group of 6 enjoyed fish tacos,... More

A group of us decided to go to this restaurant for the experience of the boat trip over and a restaurant on a bay. The boat trip was okay, but the seats were so low in the boat we couldn't see around us. The restaurant had no view whatsoever and the food was just average. Patrons cannot walk over to... More

The only day worth going is Wednesdays as they have Island Appreciation day then with modest discounts. I don't think I'd go any other day.

This restaurant is a must!!! Food is excellent. Location is wonderful! You have to take the water taxi for the experience! Our kids loved it!. Make sure you allow enough time to wander the island and shore. It's great! Sunsets are amazing.

Having a captured audience on Palm Island (ferry off island is $55), this place is surprisingly economical and food is good and appropriate for the theme of Island living. Nice view from window side table. Friendly staff. Well worth a return visit.

Fabulous Thanksgiving Buffet! Was super busy and the staff handled it really well. Pumpkin soup was rich and delicious, loved the carrot salad. Turkey was moist and the ham was superb. Stuffing and gravy, spot on! For fish lovers - some salmon! Mashed potatoes with garlic - smooth and lovely. Dessert, all you could want. HERE'S MY GRIPE…. we are... More

Service was poor. Difficult to obtain Waitress attention. Our order was was wrong resulting in some people eating, some waiting. Food flavor was OK. Restroom could have been cleaner - but perhaps boaters are harder on facilities? Docking situation was good.
