Point of Interest
“Our favorite place to eat! Turn across from McDonalds onto Army Road and park on the left when the road ends at a security station. It is open to civilians who must show ID at the security station before entering. Many times there is live music on the weekends. You sit right on the water, the food is reasonably priced and excellent! Note: It may be currently closed for remodeling…. :-(”

“Not too many people know about this place. Not really the best food but has the BEST view of sundown on this side of the island. Great place to go for a drink. Remember to bring your ID as it is an army base. ”
