The young man driving the banana boat recommended Uncle's to us. It was good food, fast and friendly service. The specials of the day were awsome.

If you go, I highly recommend you going on a night that they have a band, and sit on the roof top after the sun goes down. The atmosphere is amazing! The crab cakes were delicious!

After a day snorkeling we asked for a recommendation for dinner and went with Uncle Ernie’s. The drinks and calamari were terrific, the main dishes good, and the key lime pie met my high expectations. The view of the sunset was also a highlight.
