  • Bartenders are very rude. Many other bars to spend your money at.
  • The waitstaff is excellent....Jesse, Shannon and Lucas are wonderful!!
  • Outdoor seating is nice, but drinks are overpricedeven by island standards.
  • Really good food. Keep in mind the island for the most part gets their food all from Sysco or Gordon. Its the chiefs that make the difference. Try the fish and chips. Youll thank me.
  • Drinks are way over priced. Ales that were six bucks on the main drag were eight bucks at the gatehouse.
  • Great outdoor seating and service. Pretzel Sticks were amazing as a quick app while getting a few drinks. Far enough away for easy seating and at bottom of hill from Grand Hotel
  • Rum runnerrrr! Also! Thomas is the
