This was our worst dinner on the island. We were sat at a table right next to a door which people insisted on using, despite the "use other door" sign. Every time they opened it, a gust of cold air blew across our table. After the third or fourth time, I started feeling really hostile. Our table wasn't level, and... More

This restaurant has a delightful variety of food and a good wine selection. Sitting up at the large, comfortable bar provides excellent service from the bartender. We enjoyed lunch here and the Tuna Wonton was especially good - just seared slices of tuna on fried wontons with a wasabi sauce. There is also a small gift shopping area with eclectic... More

I've been visiting HHI for about 16 years now and I can say with certainty that last night's meal was the best so far. It was our last night on the island and we couldn't decide where to go. My family was trying to decide between our favorites: Frankie Bones, Skull Creek, Wise Guys, One Hot Mamas and Old Oyster... More

We ordered cocktails and wine; the dinners. Baskets of bread and water with lemon were served very quickly. We noted that the servers did not seem to know who ordered which dish, so there was a bit of confusion? Two of us ordered the shrimp linguini, which was very nicely flavored and good. One ordered the Caesar salad with that... More

Went on vacation with my parents in July. The place was empty as we went for a very early dinner and had reservations. My mom requested another tab,e and were told no because those were all reserved which was weird as we had reservations as well and I found it hard to believe that every other table had specifically been...

We visit Truffles Cafe at least once every visit to HHI. It may be one of the older restaurants on the island but it still is one of the best. Reasonable prices, outstanding service and reliable reservations. Highly recommended!

We had heard good things about this place and had visited a few years ago and had a nice experience......unfortunately things have changed. We booked for 8pm and I think we were out of the place by 9.15 even though we had 2 courses! The food was ok, we enjoyed some dishes others, not so much. The "Asian noodles" in... More

After all these years visiting HHI we decided for this semi annual visit to forgo our favorites and try restaurants we had never eaten. Have to say the food from start to finish was excellent. The French onion soup wonderful, Cesar salad good, the tuna wontons excellent, as well as the key lime pie. Mango lemonade marginal but everyone enjoyed... More

I'll hold off on the one thing that keeps Truffles from being perfect until the end, but, first, the qualifications and the good stuff. My wife and I have been coming to HHI since the 70s. We've rented here on vacations for years and have owned a second home here for 13 years. In that span of time, we've eaten... More
