We were there when a rehearsal dinner was taking over the restaurant. We ate in the large bar area. The atmosphere was nice and a bit upscale. Not flip flops and tanks. We sat next to the large windows and had a great dinner. Steak and fish were very good. The service was good. They were able to accommodate my son which wanted something not on the kids menu. He wanted a plain cheese pizza not a grow up one with fancy cheeses. The servers were very nice and helpful. The bartender was out of an ingredient for a cocktail that my husband ordered. She made something special for him and made sure he liked it. A good choice for a night out.

Tried the bar and grill area (2nd floor) for lunch. Food was ok, but received large portions relative to cost. Very nice view of Tybee Island. Service was average, not the quickest, but experienced much worse in the area.

Our group of four were seated at a table near the floor to ceiling windows facing the beach. If possible, call ahead and reserve one of these tables. The restaurant is located inside one of the biggest hotels on the island, but their is plenty of parking behind in a public area. The menu was quite diverse and we tried seafood, chicken, and pizza with everyone satisfied. The bar area was nice with soft live music from a steel drum. The prices were fair and the service excellent and we were very pleased with the entire experience.

My mom wanted to eat here for the view and it was great. We ate early around 5 at the bar and the hostess sat us right by the window with an amazing view of the ocean. I ordered a Mojito which was delicious, the bartender did a fabulous job. We ordered nachos and calamari which were very good. Unfortunately the waitress took forever to come back for our dinner orders and when we did order it was 45 min before we got dinner. Luckily our appetizers filled us up so we were not starving. Bacon cheeseburger and gumbo was good. The view is worth it so I would go back for a drink and appetizer, skip dinner.

We went for breakfast. The breakfast buffet was average...some fruit, eggs and waffles with breakfast meat. I ordered the seafood benedict. First, it took a very long time to prepare, and the restaurant was not busy. Second it was overlooked. The eggs were hard. The sauce was good. The service was poor. Perhaps it was her first day? She could not answer questions about the menu. And she was losing her voice...which is an indication she might be getting sick. The restaurant itself was dirty and not kept up.
