I had a fish sandwich which was fresh and delicious. My husband had eggs and corned beef hash. I tasted some of his hash and thoroughly enjoyed it. Waitress was very attentive and cordial.

We stopped in for breakfast. The staff was very friendly, especially the elderly woman running the cashier whose granddaughter is a chef. I had the sautéed alligator. It was prepared very well and I'll eat it again.

Service fast and accurate. Shrimp or chicken salad plate with freash fruit looked great. Charming "island" signs decorated the walls.

Yes it is. There is a ramp outside the restaurant to use. It goes to the promenade with the restaurant and stores. They have chairs, which can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair.
