I have been there 4 times of which all never got to eat. First time was there 10mins till closing and front door locked and open sign on. Second time same deal there 10 min before close and they already had door locked at 7:50pm and open sign on. Third time open sign is on and door unlocked at 2:00 pm and go in to be turned away because there closed in between lunch as dinner, lock the door and turn off open sign. Last time I went after them being open for 3 or 4 weeks they still didn't accept credit cards so couldn't eat and left. That's it for me never again. Good luck. Tried to eat there 4 times. How do you run a business, a new business and do stuff like this. I will not be back. peace.

I recommend Subway, they cut the amount of stuff they put on it , no way will you get fat. Course I was fat when I got there so I was fat when I left. I would like to loose weight, Lord knows I've tried, but my neighbor just won't move.

Is that where the BBQ place was that burned down, what did they call it the Log Cabin? I don't eat out, I prefer to fix my E.coli at home. Besides I need the tips.

Tried baked cod last night and it was good. Still no credit cards. Debit cards, checks and cash only. They will be struggling as long as they charge $16 for 4 oz of fish served on a plastic plate - no matter how good it is. Re Capt Ernie's or Caribbean Grill - it is either. Choose one from column A and one from column B and call it dinner.

Summer-games:: I don't know if I'm willing to set through 33 minues of talk to see a .002 second dive. China sending 396 member team, they start training as a fetus. There is always the age problem with them, I bet half will be under 6.

I bet you go to bed early so you can get your rest, to come up with all this new material.

I get my best sleep at the computer. Its hell on my verizon bill. course they usually have dropped me. Reception sucks, I was hoping they would put up another tower, instead they build a store, if they put up another tower there would be people to go in the store. Can you here me now?

We waited 35 minutes for our meal. We felt so sorry for the waitress since she was the only one trying to care for every table. Every table was occupied. We we finally decided to leave she brought our food out but it was the wrong order!

Told the waitress and she disappeared for another 5 minutes. Walked up to the counter and the dark haired woman is in the kitchen screaming about not telling people they they will comp their meals for taking so long.

I knocked on the counter to get her attention. she opened the kitchen door and almost yelling said "WHAT!"

At that point I said forget it. I told her we ate our coleslaw and I wanted to pay for it but she yelled at me and told me to leave, with her hands waving in the air.

I do not recommend this restaurant at all. If you do go, don't go in hungry. Leave yourself plenty of time to get hungry and surely don't expect speedy service.

I feel sorry for the waitress, this seems to be a management problem. if I were her I would be pissed too. I agree with you, I wouldn't go back either. If they can't run the facility they don't need to be in business. I never eat out. they are nasty, abusive and expensive. Besides I can nuke it better than they can, & a lot less expensive.

We had a bad experience and I spoke with Ernie about it and he was so apologetic, he said he is on his own with new cooks he is having to train from scratch. He is overwhelmed and asked for a second chance, so we will try again, I really what him to succeed.

First thing he needs to do is choose a name. Now there are three on and around the building.
That doesn't say much for their ability to make decisions (much less good decisions). I'll check them out when I drive by and see they've chosen a name for the restaurant.
