The food at He knife was one of the tastiest meal I have had in a while. The smoked beef short rib was literally falling of the bone and the fries was so tasty, I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of my meal.

Had dinner here. Luckily we made a booking as restaurant was very busy. Service was still top notch. The steaks were awesome. Chicken not advisable.

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!
