“Sunday brunch is great for pork-lovers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

We went for Sunday brunch at Tin Box in January 2014. The restaurant has a fantastic setting -- it feels like a treehouse out back, with a great bar up front a seating area in the back overlooking the jungle and their gardens where they grow fresh food. First thing you can see when you walk in is the bloody mary bar.

The oysters here are fantastic -- lots of variety (5 types, when we were there) and very fresh. The BBQ here is also knock your socks off good -- we had pulled pork tostada, their angry bacon (which was candied!) and the ribs. Now, ribs can be tricky to cook properly, but they did a great job -- falling off the bone tender with a great smokey flavor that didn't overwhelm.

Great place for brunch!

“good bbq”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

For Island eating this one was pretty good. This is the only place on the island to get BBQ- make a reservation and try to hit happy hour. The cornbread was pretty bad and our server was crabby. My husband"s pulled pork was just ok- the ribs were decent. One highlight was the oysters

“Poor BBQ but nice atmosphere and other food decent.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Was there end of March 2014 with my wife. Not terribly picky eaters but was surprised how bad the full rack of bbq ribs was ... they were charred / tasted burnt. I've had tons of ribs and these were the worst. My wife had a ribeye and it was good. They also served a grilled sweet potato which was quite good. I also had a side of corn bread which was bleh.
