Casual dining on the water. Halibut was great. Would definitely go here again. It's always a little awkward dining alone but Santiago was cool.More

We ate here twice while staying on the island, returning for a second time because of the fantastic kids meals, not to mention the views. This is a more expensive restaurant, but you'll find everything on the island is expensive, and at least here you're...More

Do you have weekday specials? I 'll be your directions in a few months and am certain to try your place. Seafood my favorite, but I have travel for the last 30 years looking for the best burger. Real fond of oyster poor boy sandwich. Your reviews and ranking speaks well of your quality and service. Can not wait to get there!

as far as a running "daily special" no they do not . They do offer chefs specials depending on the daily catch . They have a great Happy Hour and do call ahead to reserve a seat out on the deck over the water.
