My son and I stopped here for a late lunch/snacks and thoroughly enjoyed the wings and beer selection. We sat inside but they also have outdoor patio seating as well.

Outdoor dining at The Gate House for a crowd is EASY! The food is delicious. The menu is wide and varied. We sat 9 outside super quick on a busy summer day. The staff was EXCELLENT! First rate service.

Great location, good food and very attentive service. We had a party of six...sat outside and enjoyed drinks, food and the island atmosphere. The prices are reasonable for the island.
