Service and food were very good, as they have been in past. However, when we received the bill we noticed the addition of an "ADMIN FEE" of $2.80 on food and drink charges of $66.24, which was also taxed.

Visited with friends just to try. Very pleased with overall service and pricing. If walking the streets of the island, stop by for some local charm.

We have eaten there the past two trips to the Island. The last trip we had the Pulled Pork BBQ with Mac and Cheese. It's so good we make it at home just like they did. We will go again this July and hope it is still around this trip.

We went here for breakfast the first day we arrived on the island. This is a must go to place. The food is fantastic, and the drinks are so fun! I got a Seabiscuit's Bloody n Beer Shooter and the Olde Smokehouse breakfast. The meal was great, the smoked hickory molasses bacon is AMAZING! To this day it is the... More

Good view... excellent service. Cocktails were very good, food was as well. It was hot that day, and sipping a few drinks with some light food was a perfect way to take a break from all the walking and sun.

We were visiting during the off season so the restaurant was still in operation while we visited but was to close for the season the week after, so they had a small limited menu at the time.

went here for lunch..got a sandwich which the menu said was overstuffed but it wasn't. Horses and carriages park out front and everyone knows they are followed by flies and this restaurant had both of their front doors propped open and of course we had to fight the flies for our food..never again..
