We stopped by 2 Sundays ago, to find out about you. We were greeted and very educated about your cafe. We liked what we saw and decided to return on Crab Night, with another couple. We arrived about 5:15 p.m. and noted 2 tables
were occupied, but no one greeted us. We seated ourselves and waited about 10 minutes before any server came to the table. Having been told about the jumbo crabs on the first visit
we ordered 1and a half dozen of jumbo's. We saw everyone else receive there crabs and were told they were the 1$ or 2$ crabs and the jumbo crabs would take 40 minutes. We constantly had to ask the server for drinks never coming over to
us in between. She seemed she was overwhelmed by all the
tables she had assigned to her. We finally received our crabs
at 6:50 p.m., and they were not jumbo's at 50$ a dozen. By now we were so hungry, we just ate the crabs served.
Jessica, I feel there was no person incharge who could have
helped this situation. Because of this, we will not return to your cafe.

I loved the Island View Waterfront Cafe, it has such a relaxing atmosphere, it's like your on a vacation without even going anywhere. The view of the Bay is amazing and the food is excellent. I loved the Crab Pretzel, I can honestly say it was the best one I've ever had. The Island View is a great place to go, the drive to the restaraunt is nice and scenic and you can feel the stress leave your body and you curve through the winding roads and you see the view open up to the Bay. The tall trees provide great shade on the deck and the breeze coming off the water feels great. The should definitely be the next stop on your list for waterfront restaraunts. You can get there by car or boat. Just give them a call or check out their website for the location.
