    We loved this place so much, we visited twice on a recent trip. Lobster Mac, yes. The Chicken & Waffles also amazing.

    great place, great service. Not your cookie cutter tourist restaurant. Sit outside. The appetizer trio (shrimp, ceviche, and lobster Mac n cheese) was my fav.

    Off the beaten path, thank goodness! Tuna watermelon ceviche was delicate and light. Hogfish with banana salsa just right. Everything was perfect down to broccoli filled muffins. 5 stars, a new fave!

    Light pan-seared fish with banana salsa is the best. Light fare. There's a story behind the massive exhaust fan in the middle of the restaurant.

    Start your meal with the app sampler. The restaurant is often full, but usually there's seating outside.

    Don't believe the hype about this place. Fish is fresh, yes; but the dishes are incredibly mediocre & bland (including the infamous lobster mac), and not cheap.
