dropped in for lunch...I think there were two girls working the shop. Blond was easy on the eyes. I wouldn't say they were speedy but they weren't bad. I had the ribs which were worth a try, not anything like what you would get in...More

This little gem is near the cruise port. We stopped here prior to getting back on board the RCCL Southern Caribbean Cruise.
