We went for dinner at an early hour. We were among only a few being served. We loved the grouper rueben sandwich. Their sweet potato fries were the best I have ever eaten. By the tim we left more people were streaming in.

Had lunch on the veranda. Very pleasant atmosphere, nice fish and chips and nice wait staff. Enjoyed the experience. Large portions and pretty tasty. Would like to go back for dinner while we're in town.
