“If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be Wagyu beef braise. It is INCREDIBLE. Kirk makes fantastic drinks behind the bar, highly recommend one of their inventive and unique martinis. They also have adorable patio seating, weather permitting, complete with twinkling lights above. Reservations encouraged, but you can always try your luck for a seat at the bar for a fun and laid back dining experience. ”

Gourmet Shop
“Big B's is a favorite for both locals and tourists. Delicious local food at affordable prices and an outdoor area with the most amazing swings! You can pick your own fruit when it is in season or purchase it from their well-stocked store, full of the products of local artists and crafts people. If you go for a concert, be sure to bring your own chair--and your mosquito repellant--and be ready to dance!”
