Went here frequently due to the proximity of our resort. Service can be pretty slow depending on when you go there. Food is good. Would recommend the grouper sandwich! Yummy!

I have tried a few of the menu items. The Delmonico steak is good for the price. The fish is a nice white fish called basa which is very nice. But the spaghetti and meatballs are the best!
