This place is nothing fancy but we went there for breakfast one morning during our vacation and ended up coming back twice more. It had good, down-home food, a decent selection and good prices. My son loved their pancakes. Nothing too unusual on the menu, but simple items well done. Nuff said!

It had a lot to choose from, reasonable prices, and was really close to our resort! The staff was pretty friendly, and the fried chicken is worth the wait!

It's not a fancy place, but really nice little spot to go with your family. Really liked the Beatle's yellow submarine theme and decor! The food was nice, basic comfort food and most of the entrees were very reasonably priced. The cornbread was excellent! We had dinner there one night, then went back for breakfast a few days later.

Stopped here late one evening while exploring the last part of the island we hadn't visited. The food, while not the most sophisticated, was adequate for a late family meal. The staff was friendly and the service was prompt. The interior isn't the fanciest, but that may be part of the charm.

My impression of this place it that it would really shine as a spot for breakfast or lunch - I will have to give it another try.

I generally do not prefer to eat in a cinder-block building at a composite folding table, but the friendly service and pleasant pricing make up for the lack of ambiance.

I've had 4 meals here in the last 2 months. With the exception of my most recent meal, the food has been very good. Breakfast is a winner every time and many of the entree's are very good as well.

I enjoyed the meatloaf dinner, tho they only use reconstituted mashed potatoes in the busy summer season. The waitress said the locals don't like skin in their mashed potatoes and when the Summer kicks in they are too busy to peel the amount of taters they would need each day to meet demand.

I was surprised to find the New England Clam Chowder quite lacking in flavor and light on clam!

ASK which foods are local and which are Sysco... it will help in the wise decision-making.

Note to Mr. Baldy's - Please upgrade your tables and chairs and remove the molding 'decorations'. Also, a little music wouldn't hurt.
