The service was a little slow, but all the servers were very polite and wanting to help us.

The food was okay. Not bad, but nothing special either.

I enjoyed listening to and watching the waves crash on the beach.

The red snapper was dry, the service was adequate but not as outstanding or friendly as other places on the island. The ambiance was good as was the view.

Upon our arrival. They could not find a reservation through OpenTable. When I mentioned OpenTable they commented oh the person that handles the computer is going for the day. The service at this restaurant was horrible. After ordering our food, we waited over 1 hour. Other tables around us were being served and seated and served before we received our food. We inquired with the wait staff and they said they were very busy. Our waiter had an assistant. They floated around the table behind us. I had ordered the all-you-can-eat ribs which were flooded with barbecue sauce. After the first set came in I waited another 20 minutes for the next set. Other cables were getting multiple sets of ribs while we waited. After inquiring again the waitstaff became very annoying asking us every 90 seconds if we wanted more. I also ordered cheesecake which was grainy and underdone. This was a huge disappointment for a $250 meal.
