The Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza was island classic and oh so very tasty. The patio seating was perfect, the drinks grand, and the service ever so warm and welcoming. Yes, it was a bit on the pricey side but still most worth it.

We had the Lobster and Crab Cakes along with Steamed Clams. They were both excellent but a little pricey. Make this a destination for a special occasion. The view from the upper-level restaurant is very nice.

Yes but agree the top level is more fine dining and the children would be better suited to the lower levels. This was a lovely restaurant.
