My wife and I wound up at Scilly Cay when our snorkeling tour stopped off for lunch. We ordered in advance (I had the crayfish and chicken) not knowing the prices. For my crayfish/chicken combo and my wife's chicken dish, we were in for $121 after the service charge was added in. Pricey, yes, but not that much more than... More

Charter captain recommended we order our lunch ahead so we didn't have to wait. We had three choices: lobster, red snapper and chicken. We forgot to ask prices. Three crayfish, three lobster, two chicken, one bottle white wine and five rum punches - receipt on a post it note $740. Not itemized. $200 a couple for lunch. Great portions, husband... More

Gorgeous Scilly Cay is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Family owned and operated by truly special people. Scilly Cay is more than just a lunch time experience. Take a 2 minute boat ride from the dock in Island Harbour and find yourself met by friends who aim to please you, serving up perfectly grilled Chicken, Lobster, Crayfish and... More

You need to take a small boat over the the tiny island. We went there with about 30 friends and family and had an incredible time. Rum Punches were flowing and the food was outstanding. Food choices were Lobster (huge) and Lobster with 1/2 chicken, pasta salad, bread, and fresh fruit. There was live music and Rum Punches. We danced... More

We spent a sunny Sunday afternoon on Scilly Cay listening to live music, drinking rum punch, and eating grilled lobster and crayfish. It was truly an awesome afternoon!

I wish we were there right now!!!!!! So much fun! So relaxing! The owner is the most hilarious man I have ever met! His son drives the boat and his wife works there too! What a great family restaurant! The rum punch is AMAZING! Careful... Just one will make you feel good; but I recommend having more than one! Lol... More

We visited the island for a birthday lunch and had a fantastic time. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Food was excellent - giant lobsters, everything was good. I called the rum punch 'happy punch', I don't even like rum punch but this was so good!! There are conch shell walls everywhere, fun to take pictures in front of,... More

My wife and I have been to this very special place three times in our lifetime. The first time was with a group of friends on a private boat and a great time was had by all. That was 20 years ago! We just went again, last week to be precise, and the island was exactly the same. The owners... More

Okay, this is a place primarily for tourists (or those of us who prefer to call ourselves "travelers"), but so what? It is a 1 minute boat ride that will zip you out and back--- all day long, but note: only 3 days a week--- to this little slice of fun and paradise.... There is a restaurant on Scilly Cay,... More
