“Unfriendly and unwelcome experience”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

My wife and I went to EastSound for lunch today and based on excellent reviews we went to Island Skillet first about 1:20pm. Restauarant was full and we were told to come back in about 15 minutes. We went around window shopping and returned to Island Skillet at 1:40pm and were glad to see available seating with no one waiting. When we requested seating, the host curtly advised no seating was available and the restaurant closed at 2pm and could not host us without any regrets or explanations.

We were shocked and disappointed with such inhospitable treatment on the island which is beautiful and everyone is friendly. We did find another very friendly restaurant (Across, Roses) which sat us immediately and we had an excellent lunch with courteous service.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

My family of three went for a late breakfast. My daughter and I weren't super hungry and decided to split one of the scrambled eggs dishes. Thank goodness we did! The portions are quite plentiful along with being really good. The prices were decent too. Thanks Trip Advisor for another good tip.

“Good food at mainland prices”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Island living and touring can be pricey and this is a super solid breakfast and lunch spot - I should know I ate there three times on a 4 day visit. Most alluring are the prices which are very competitive for anywhere, most especially an island with high end prices. The fruit cups are fresh, the service attentive, and the wait time usually under 15 minutes (typically no wait before 8:30 am or so).

“Attitude”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We walked out after the Host crapped us attitude. Waited politely with my 84 year old mother and 12 year old nephew. Host told us that it was our fault that people cut in front of us. Don't go here if you are polite and with people who actually need food.
