Our prices put us right in the middle of the pack value wise of all the top rated restaurants on the island. We hope our food quality, consistency and service make us “top” of the pack in our guests minds!
An example of relative value: another highly regarded restaurant on LCI serves a 3 course meal for $15US, while 6 of our 4 plate dinners are priced from $9 to $14.
More good news too, our prices are low! Breakfast starts as low as $2.99, lunches start at $4.9 and our excellent four plate dinners start as low as $9.Don’t forget to enjoy our fresh brewed bottomless cup of coffee in the mornings for only $2.50 (served from 6:45am to 10:00am).

Remember, no reservations required.
Bottomless cup of brewed coffee (bottomless for hotel guests, restaurant visitors limited to 5 cups) at breakfast, 2.50US (self serve).
Select specialties like seafood, steak and dry rubbed baby back ribs.
If you choose to forego our delicious savory sauces our food is actually very healthy.
Grass fed beef, fresh fish and shrimp, low fat chicken breast, no processed foods, soups, salads, and vegetables (spinach, broccoli, mixed vegetables, fresh pesto) and none of our food is fried (with the exception of french fries, fresh corn chips and onion rings) as we grill our entrees.
In our effort to provide a fresh and dynamic menu, almost every day we make a different dessert served for the evening as well as a different salad or soup and a fresh, new starter. While it may seem limiting, we have actually found that this process typically keeps our guests satisfied because whatever is served that day is fresh and different than what was available the day before. It also helps our hard working staff provide consistently excellent service and wonderful (hopefully) dining experiences.
Turned Turtle Bar:
The Turned Turtle Bar features our delicious Margaritas (best in Central America, huge and absolutely no mixes), BigJeffs’ Mudhole and our FAMOUS Pina Coladas. Our FROZEN Jose Cuervo and Mango margaritas are just that, FROZEN! We are the only bar on the island to offer Margaritas that are not diluted with blended ice.
Island famous Pina Colada!
Be sure to check out our wine selection which includes table service and wines from California, Australia, Chile and Argentina. We think it may be the best wine selection on Little Island.
