“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

There are many wonderful restaurants in Grand Caymasked. This isn't one of them.
My wife and I live in Grand Cayman and the only reason we went there to listen to some live music.

When we arrived to see the restaurant almost empty except for a table of tourists we should have left.
We stayed and were given menus.
I asked the waitress if the pizzas were frozen or freshly made. She told me that they were freshly made, thin and crisp and the kitchen had a pizza oven.
We ordered 2 pizzas between 3 of us.
I ordered a mango smoothie.

The smoothie arrived with artificial whipped cream on top.

The pizzas were thick and doughy. Obviously re-heated from frozen.

I struggled through 2 slices and left the rest.

Our friend had diarrhea that night.

Avoid at all costs.
Portions were big though.

“below average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

I had a main here and it was poor. The restaurant has the feel of a greasy spoon but way more expensive.

“Good food, service & great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

This is a hidden gem on the island. We love eating here - the grouper is amazing, best wings I've ever had (while watching the Super Bowl on the restaurant patio), they offer good salads & local dishes, as well. Very casual, as it is pool side & ocean side. Always a nice breeze from the North Sound - facing Stingray City:)

“Holiday Inn restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Since the Holiday Inn is a little out of the way, I'm not sure we would have eaten here if we weren't hotel guests there. But if you are staying at the Holiday Inn, it is really nice to have a place to eat when you don't feel like going into town or finding somewhere on the beach. The food is actually really nice- I think we all had the snapper at some point and loved it. We also had our Thanksgiving dinner here and that was good. Just don't plan to eat on the patio during their live music or karaoke nights.
