We love the Happy Hour with 50% off on most appetizers. Generous sizes, too.

This use to be one of my favorite restaurants, decided to visit again after a couple of years, i Can safely say i will not be coming back. Food was barely ok, lacked flavor and the service was awful. Very slow, and forgetful. We didn’t get waters, brought us the wrong drink and still charged us for it which was ridiculous. Overall terrible and embarrassing, we invited guests.

First timer......and last.
Service was mediocre, upon arrival the hostess made a big production on the wait time for the patio as we arrived early. We sat at the bar for 5 minutes before being greeted........and asked if we wanted a drink (the bar was clearly not that busy with patrons) there was lots of activity between bar and waitstaff.
Drinks were great!!!!
Food again was mediocre......certain aspects were good others not.

First visit at dinner time. Facility is long established but looking like a remodel refreshing is in order, however very clean and presentable. Island drinks tasty and well poured. Food is Caribbean themed and is OK. Portions ample. Live musical performer in enclosed patio a treat and energetic. Great service and staff. We'll be back on occasion.

Although we had a reservation there was a dispute about seating which required the intervention of the manager for resolution. The food was not good: both appetizers were cold and appeared as they were slid around the plate before arriving at the table, both shrimp/lobster linguine meals were bland and not served warm, french fries served with the sandwiches were limp and soggy, of the six meals prepared only one was finished. The music was extremely loud to the extent yelling was required to carry on a conversation at the table. This was a return visit to determine if the first visit was at a poor time, but lesson learned we will not return and will definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Food was great. Drinks were delicious and average priced. There was a mixed up with the server scheduling and we weren't assigned one so we had to ask for a server. However, the manager took responsibility, apologized and made our table a priority. Our waitress was excellent and apps and dessert was on the house.

The food was very good. We had multiple appetizers and entrees which were fantastic. However, the service was poor and most nonexistent. The waiter could not be found and we had to flag other employees down to get service.

Food was sub par, sauce for pasta was broken, nothing but separated butter, over cooked rubbery shrimp in the calypso shrimp pasta. My sons talapia from the kids menu was so over cooked that the fish was twisted and tail was curled up. He didn’t mind but still, that’s not how to cook fish. The quesadillas were ok at best. The bar goes strictly off their menu..don’t ask for something that was on their drink menu..they won’t make it. All in all, this was one of my wife’s favorite restaurants, she no longer cares to go back it was that kind of a let down. We skipped dessert.

This place had really gone down hill and service was terrible!! My advice - get another job if you don’t like people - no one appreciates your *itchy attitude. Food was horrible - my husband’s fish was slapped on a plate and smothered with BBQ sauce to hide the fishy taste. We used to love this place...but will never be back!!

Very satisfied with this place. I strongly recommend to those who want to eat occasionally away from the city. Don't get me wrong, it's little far from the city, but as I said earlier if you want to get away from the city that's the right place to go. I can't wait to go there again.

We went for our wedding anniversary & everything was great- the coconut shrimp and empanadas were delicious, the boat drinks were boozy and tropical, and our food was piping hot and full of flavor! Our waitress was very attentive and helpful!

Our service was awful, our waiter acted like we were bothering him. 4 out of 6 of our plates were bad and were served dried out . You can tell it had been sitting under a heat lamp for awhile. I was so disappointed because we were celebrating our daughters birthday,

Food was great! I’m not satisfied with service. The people serving food were rude, spilled the drink over and did not even clean or say sorry. Also, no attention towards customers waiting

Food was great. Our server was helpful. The "porch" was a lovely setting for talking. We weren't rushed at all. Oh, and we split a dessert 3 ways and still didn't finish it!

The drinks and atmosphere are absolutely wonderful. However the food is absolutely awful and definitely not worth the prices they are selling it for. I’ve been there three times now, ordering different things trying to be gracious and give this place a shot, and every time have been disappointed. Definitely a better place to go and get drinks as opposed to food.
