Fun place to hang out on Crescent. Went there for dinner and had a great time. Food is descent and the atmosphere is perfect for the island.

While on the island, you must stop by and get the wiki wacker. It's a decent rum punch and includes a goofy hat. It's just a fun place to have a cocktail and a good laugh.

This is an interesting eatery... my name is Larry so I had to stop in here for a sample of their cuisine. We had the front window booth which is great for people watching while you eat. The Buffalo Burger and French Dip were terrific...More

1. The drink was $9 when I was there and comes with a hat. 2. It is served in a tall hurricane glass so about 12 oz. 3. I think 6 at the cave table. 4. Email Lisa. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post her email address.
