We went with a party of 6 and they happily seated us, even with a handicap wheelchair. The hostess was extremely kind and put us at ease. The food was top notch - so delicious. One of our best meals the entire weekend.

We enjoyed lunch here while visiting the island for the day. Great food and atmosphere. Great place for families or adults only. I'm sure ifs a popular place in the evenings.
