Hey there Uuaww -- let me point out some things to you.
(1) Eat @ Cane Bay only has a Sunday Brunch hours - nothing else - so you got there too late for brunch. So if you want to boycott a place for not serving Sunday dinner that's your choice. There are 2 places now in Cane bay that only do Sunday Brunch from about 10am to 3pm (Eat@Cane Bay & The Waves)

2) There are no specials at Rowdy Joes until dinner time which is 6pm. Since you went there sometime between 4&5pm -- there is no way you are going to get the dinner special for that evening as the kitchen doesn't cook "dinner specials" until 6pm. (3) I have never found RJ's to have slow service but perhaps your expectations are different.

Jumbie

Jumbie, we were at RJs at 615 or so, and we had empty beers on our table most of the dinner. this has happened multiple times i have eaten there. Why would a waitress not want to sell us more drinks? doesn't make since to us. And I will go to cane bay again, but ive tried to eat their multiple times and cant find it open.

Hey all!
Update on The Case Place Crab Dip! Yup, we still have it and YES...it's STILL gooey, yummy and terribly rich! The new price is $11.00 but the portion is the same...(alot!). The bread is still great too. Our lunch specials are temporarily very limited due to us just having re-opened after a full month off. We will be back in shape soon as possible..(.WAPA woes etc...)
Hope to see you all there sometime.

ps-I'm not allowed to cook anything there, so YES...it IS safe to eat there! :-o:-o:-o

Uuaww - Rutrow on empty beers -- also being there after 6 -should have been a dinner special but perhaps that night they didn't have one. As for Eat@Cane Bay their Sunday Reggae Brunch hrs are 11am to 4pm. They are open Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat at around 11am for lunch and then on into dinner hours. They are closed all day Tuesday's until the winter/high season starts.

Went to Eat @ Cane Bay I had the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries my husband had the brisket and onion rings.
The pulled pork sandwich is different then I'm used to, it has no sauce. The pork was good quality meat but I was looking for some sauce kinda like a sloppy joe has so I was a little disappointed in that. The sweet potato fries were great. The brisket was okay and the onion rings were delicious we were told they are homemade.
Service was good. We will go back, I think I would go for a burger or one of there specials instead.

Off The Wall does a great pulled pork sandwich. They sometimes have it as a special. Good sauce.

margaritagirl,
Are you familiar with North Carolina BBQ? Was it like that? "We" don't use sauce, at least not the traditional bbq sauce. NC Q may have a very thin mustard or vinegar based sauce, but usually you just put hot sauce, like Texas Pete, on it and if the coleslaw is good, throw that on the sandwich. The bbq isn't really dry though. Hard to explain. Sounds like I definitely will be making a trip to Eat@Cane Bay in the very near future.

LOL! I was at Eat@CaneBay on Saturday. I talked to Kathryn about the pulled pork. I told her that I like the pork sandwiches not smothered in sauce! Where I come from in Tennessee we actually like to taste the pork, not just the sauce. I sent her a recipe for Leonard's Coleslaw and suggested that the sandwiches not be smothered in sauce but that sauce should be available to be added as one likes.

There are plenty of places on island which smother their pork sandwiches in sauce, Cheeseburgers on Friday night, Case Place all of the time, etc. It's nice to have one restaurant which doesn't cover up the taste of the pork.

John

PS. I had the open faced Brisket Sandwich on Saturday and it was very good. I also like the build you own hamburger idea. I love a fried egg on my burger just like on the French islands.

I was in STX for a few days in August (planning to move in Jan) and there were some real extremes of service. Polly's at the Pier in F'sted was awful--burnt veggie burgers, rude attitudes from staff, order was wrong. Then when I posted the review at TripAdvisor.com, the owner (who was one of the ones who was so snotty) got on the site and started messaging me, arguing about the review. In the lower price range, I really recommend the Avocado Pitt--tiny, but great food and great service. Had a really bad experience at the Buccaneer for dinner--the service was so bad that we walked out before the food even came. But the management was really nice when we reported it--offered dinner on them. And the restaurant at The Palms at Pelican Cove was amazing! Our server, Violet, had a great personality and was very attentive. The food was better-priced than at the Buccaneer, and the quality was great. The portions were huge (all but 1 of our party took home part of the meal), and the atmosphere was beautiful.

Juanita, I never have had pulled pork from North Carolina. But I think you described what it is. I was wondering what that tang was in the pork, it must be the vinegar and there was a little heat to it. Like I said I thought the pork was good quality meat but I guess I'm just so used to having the sauce. It wasn't bad just different than what I'm used to. I think it is the same thing about ribs, some like them smothered in sauce and some don't.

Rotorhead, I do like the idea of having the sauce on the side. That way it is a win win for everyone.
I will go back to try one of Franks specials. The NY strip steak looked real good.

What a treat! We had lunch at Eat@Cane Bay, and it says right on the menu..."North Carolina style" for the pulled pork sandwich. That first bite, and I was in heaven. I didn't care for the coleslaw. It was too "big" and too white. Needs to be shredded more so it can go on the sandwich. Really pigged out (pun intended)..hugh sandwich, fries, o-rings and slaw. Hubby had a build your own salad, which is just one of the most clever ideas ever! Said the blue cheese dressing was the absolute best he had ever had. Service was excellent, quick and friendly. We will be back, and if it stays the same, we will be back often, until all that pork starts showing up where it shouldn't!! All that food, 2 beers and iced tea, $36.50, plus tip.

But...but...if it's white slaw and not red, it's not NC style. White slaw is for fish. 🙂

Had the Chef's salad at Brew Pub last night and was surprised. For $12 it had chicken, bacon, huge and well cooked shrimps and I believe a crawfish although it was hard to find. Really good value for $12. Not sure how I overlooked this one for so long, maybe never thought to look at the salads section of the menu there.

THAT is a good salad. it's a hidden secret - and it is crawfish. usually chef salads are made of deli meat for the same price so this one is surprising.

Mahi's at Chenay Bay is changing back to Chenay Bay. Guess there's been a management change

WOW! How long did that take? It might be a new island record, beating out Zizzlers.

We went Tuesday night and they said that they were closed for 1 day for cleaning. Someone else we know went Wednesday night and they were told that they were shut down. Does anyone know what is going on?

It's a North Carolina thing. We do a vinegar-based "red" slaw that's supposed to go with pork. White slaw is a totally different concept.

I like the red slaw, but that's a Piedmont thing. Down on the coast we like it green.:-) (We need an icon for yummmm.)
