This is our 3rd time here--and we will go again when we visit next. Just a great place to enjoy great food, good drinks and a fun atmosphere. Make no mistake, it can be pricey, but well worth it. The chicken and lobster were awesome!

I was really disappointed in Scilly Cay. The place wasn't clean. There were plastic cups littered around, the lounge chairs need to be fixed, and our table was dirty. The food is very expensive!
