Started in the lettuce and slug pub happy hour and decided to eat at the knife. It ended up being a good way to shake jetlag. The ostrich was good as was the pumpkin puree. Nice wine also available by the glass. Recommended.

We came here for a friend's birthday dinner. The venue is massive so we had a very nice secluded seating area to celebrate! Service from the waiters is decent. Everything on the menu is just delicious. Coming here was a great idea!

If you want consistently good food The Knife is a good place to go. We regularly visit for great fillet steaks and pepper sauce. The price includes a steak of your choice, fries, corn and a sauce. Meat is really tender, service good. Nice ambience.

Would have loved to help you on this one, Umaboody, but let the people at the Island Club phone them for you to find out! I have stayed at the Island Club several times and the people there are VERY nice and helpful!
