We ate here one day when the cruise ships were in. We had jerk chicken and fried shrimp, both of which were delicious. The setting is fun, right on the beach, we really enjoyed it.

Good food and great drinks, all while looking out at the ocean. I do wish they would sell T-shirts that doesn't say either Bartender or Bar Fly on the backs. We are going back in Oct on another cruise.
