Decided to cross street for breakfast rather then drive to someplace since we didn't know the area. Was pleasantly surprised. Being off season there was no crowd but, I guess, most of the people ther were locals. We were greeted warmly and even before sitting...More

The line was out the door at the famous diamond shoals grill, so we went around the curve to the shipwreck grill. What a pleasant surprise! A fresh paint job inside done in the vibrant color style of the island. A friendly, laid back yet...More
