“Mediocre food, bad service”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Went for trivia night. Was busy with many tables playing trivia.

Server took 10 minutes to greet table, not a good start. I ordered Mahi blackened with a side salad and mashed potatoes. Large portion of mahi that was decent but nothing interesting. The side salad was not impressive - iceburg salad mix with diced tomatoes, onions, 2 cucumber slices and a teaspoon of shredded cheddar. Since they don't make their dressings on site I tried the cucumber wasabi dressing which reminded me of Green Goddess with wasabi - the most interesting part of my meal. Mashed potatoes were good but that should be a given at any restaurant. BF ordered the cheese steak and fries and was disappointed - cheese steak was on hot dog type bun, not much meat, with american cheese and the fries were luke warm.

Love that they have a dog patio. The property is nice, lots of TV's playing sports

“Great Food, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for lunch yesterday. The food was very good and our server was excellent. She was there when we needed her but left us alone when we didnt. I wish more places had servers that were as intuitive.

Had to try the cheesesteak........ it was very good. Not Philly good, but as good as it gets outside of the City of Brotherly Love!

“Great Bar Food!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Went today for dinner and was able to get two full meals with an appetizer and drinks for around $20 before tip! The open atmosphere was welcoming and refreshing, the staff was friendly and the prices were great. Most of the food on this small island is a rip-off but this place was great! I would recommend it to anybody staying on vacation here.
