NIce views of the water, ok for lunch, fair service, a little over priced for what you get. We had cheeseburgers and they were pretty good. Credit card machine was down which required us to make a run to the ATM for cash.

This open air restaurant is directly on the water -- not the beach -- the water. You enter by walking across a wooden dock. You can see tarpon and other fish swimming in the clear waters from your table. I imagine kids would love this -- feeding the fish, etc. They have a full bar and a casual lunch menu.... More

We went there tonight (5/17/17) with our sons and their girlfriends. Food was amazing- lobster, Barbecue chicken and pork, salad, coleslaw, tuna macaroni, potato salad, corn on the cob, vegetables, rice and johnny cakes! To top it off, live entertainment- right on the water. If you are in Virgin Gorda- a must stop! Rick Grant

Great spot to have a dr no anytime of day. The huge tarpon are always hanging around the dock. The food isn't the best on the island but is not bad.

We arrived around 5:30pm just in time to have a glass of wine before our dinners were served along with a gorgeous sunset. Best sunsets on the island. Meals were excellent with me having swordfish and my wife, the snapper.

We are here prior to our afternoon ferry/flight. The food is very good, locals eat here too which is a good recommendation. They have daily specials as well as the normal menu. You can sit and watch the tarpon while waiting, or just admire the view over the water.

We stopped in for lunch at about 3:30pm after a long day at The Baths. They served us right away - beers and shrimp salads and burgers. Good food, and very nice view of the water.

Stopped for a quick lunch on our first day on the island, which was a perfect choice. Our server Lisethe was friendly, helpful, and had a fun sense of humor. Burgers were fat and satisfying, and salad modifications for food intolerances were handled easily. It was also a preview of the high prices we would be paying all week for... More
