The new restaurant at Salt River Marina, the Pirates Tavern, not only has huge Margaritas for only $5 but they've got some of the best mexican food we've ever had anywhere including Mexico. If you haven't gone because you think it is going to be the same as Columbus Cove you'll be amazed at how friendly the people are & what great values they have.

We tried a new restaurant last week called Reminisce.

We stopped for lunch. It's on Rt. 79 just north of the hospital and on the left heading north. There's a small sigh on the side of the road. You have to drive way up a hill past several houses to get to the restaurant. Drive around to the top where there is a flat parking lot by the main entrance. We entered from the back, no biggie.

We met the two owners. Two nice young ladies that I would bet are from the NY metro area.

The lunch we had was very good. Mama had the coconut shrimp and fries while I had the fish and chips. The shrimp were cooked just right, firm but not over cooked.

The fish was also well cooked, firm and moist.

The only complaint was with the bar. My vodka tonic had plenty of vodka but no tonic, she used water.

We'll probably give them a dinner try when we return in Nov.

I recommend reservations several days in advance as we tried to go there Saturday night with some friends, only to find out they were booked solid 2 days prior.

went to eat at cane bay for the first time in ages. Much improved. They no longer skimp on the sides and when you order avocado or bacon or whatever extras on the burger, they give a ton, it can be pricey but at least they are giving you your moneys worth. The burger itself was overcooked and a bit bland but the extra topping were awesome. I would order it again.

Eaten at Reminisce a few times, its decent but always packed. Probably because it is the only nicer restaurant in hte area, it seems to be doing well. The food was pretty good and def. reasonably priced. not bad at all.

Been to Mariams for Mexican food. Cheap and decent for a good lunch. Will fill you up for $12.

Blue water terrace as a friday special where the fried chicken is 25% off and all you can eat. You get 4 pieces, 2 sides and a biscuit for $14... way to much food anyways. Great fried chicken from lori as usal.

Anyone know how long rowdy joes is closed?

Hi foodies,

Me and the gal are staying at Carambola this weekend for a little staycation using Marriott points. I see their restaurant options are limited on property. Where's the closest place a couple can get a nice dinner? Haven't been to that part of the island much.

TIA.

Eat will be closing for vacation, I think next week after Rowdy Joe's opens again. The North Shore restaurants work together to coordinate their closures.

What has happened to Rowdy Joe's? Went there last night and the food was horrible. Think they need to change up their menu too. Same old same old after a couple years is just old. I have never understood why you cannot get a salad there either. It was the typical service with attitude and took forever to get the check. Will not be back there for awhile. Too bad, we use to frequent weekly with friends and then started going to Salt River and Eat.
White Bean Soup was so thick a spoon could almost stand up in it. Tasted like flour!
Mahi special was not fresh and the mashed potatoes were cold!
The ice cream with fruit was full of ice crystals.
YUCK!

In defense of Rowdy Joe's, they did just reopen on Monday. Re-opening a restaurant can lead to some inconsistencies.

Ate @ eat twice over the weekend. I was VERY impressed with food and service.

There is another reason: it's the restaurant renovated and owned by the Schindler family, yes, the one of Kurt Schindler fame. They are very well known and liked on STX and have lots of connections. That certainly doesn't hurt as far as getting people in the door. To be fair, they did do a bang-up job with the renovations.

Ack. I can't think of Schindler without recalling that frivolous lawsuit he filed against HOVENSA.

That said, had dinner at Blue Water Terrace last week and the goat cheese/apple/walnut salad was not only spectacular, but HUGE and, I think, a bargain at $14. Service was exemplary and the view at sunset is spectacular (despite the fact that you have to look at Lee Rohn's house). I think the goats are a fun addition, too. They oughta start making their own chevre.

We tried it with some friends and thought it was merely "OK". Nice setting though. Felt the same way about BBC when we finally tried it.

Oh...the drink! I thought he was talking about a place. I don't particularly care for BBC's either.

BBC = Bernies Beachside Cafe
Four of us went there about two weeks ago.
Food was "ok". Price seemed a bit much for the quality/taste. The place was nearly empty and could use some ambience, other than the ocean which is blocked by a large sea grape tree. But I know they've had a lot of people out there at other times. Thing is, it's so far away for some of us that it's going to have to be special to make the trip. At this point, if I'm going to Fsted for dinner, you can't beat Sandcastle's Beachside restaurant. More of a dining experience than bar with food, ...and you can see the water. (Not trying to be picky, just wanna get my money's worth when we go out to eat).

BBC = Sunset Grill = Sprat Hall

Depends on how long you've been here.

Kinda like "Rhythms" will always be "Rainbow".

We've been to Bernie's a few times and really enjoyed it each time. Although, I've been disappointed that both times the Chicken 'n Waffles was not available.

As for Blue water, we keep going for everything but a sit-down dinner... milk + eggs, ice cream, a side to compliment dinner. I think we need to go back and TRY dinner again. It's been hit or miss in the past.

Had brunch today at Duggans - It's been a long time since we last did that! and it's so goo, not sure why we don't do it more often.

Had "happy hour" drinks + apps at Kendricks lounge a couple nights ago. The shrimp Nachos were awesome - we were practically licking the plate. And it was enough to share. Almost making the evening reasonable.

Brought home Salmon from Basic Butcher. And a few pieces of their homemade bacon, (keeps the hubs happy). The market is pricey, but worth it to get fresh + good.
