“The Safari Room has the best view on the island. Definitely a place I don’t mind spending time at! They have to die for homemade chowder and some of the best tuna poke I have ever had. I highly recommend the Safari Room around sunset, you will not be disappointed!”

“This is the third time we have eaten here and each time it seems to get even better. The view is just tremendous but when you get your food, the best is yet to come. This restaurant deserves an entire evening of your time. Come early for drinks and the view and then enjoy the best meal you have ever had. We live 135 miles away, but we will be back.”
