Speaking of the ABC's - you'll notice I have the poll for the letter I up to the left. Yes - I'm cheating. My good friend Rachel told me about Island Frydays so long ago - there aren't many I restaurants - so I decided to take this one in my own hands (she'll be so happy). It's a Jamaican restaurant in Clifton and is really cheap - woohoo! I'm looking forward to it.
Reach Magazine, Wags Park, Slatts Pub and a variety of other businesses. I know this because I worked for Reach last summer when they were building Hahana! Hahana Beach has beach volleyball and hosted the ATP event last summer as soon as it opened. It was a crazy time!
The restaurant is very big and has a wide-open feel. There are garage doors that lift up during good weather and lead to the courts.
There were four of us and we started with wings with BBQ sauce ($8.99). They were fine - my friend said a little fatty but the sauce was very tasty and sweet.
We also had the crab cakes ($8.99) - again - fine. One of our party thought they were a little spicy - I thought they were just okay. Nothing too special.
Terry's goat cheese). I'm not sure if it wasn't cooked enough or what - I just knew I didn't feel like finishing.
The burger came with a side of Hawaiian cole slaw - not a fan of that either.
What I was a fan of were the sweet potato fries. These are DELICIOUS! First - they're waffle fries - which are the best - then they've got little bits of sugar baked in. The fries were the best part of the night - by far! Everybody at the table loved them.
Max & Erma's - but a nice ending to the meal. The fruit - GAG - the boys were much more interested than the girls. It was too strong...it's not really a dessert option - the server just brought it out for the guys since they were asking about it.
As we left - we saw this house out back. The photo doesn't do it justice - that house is a peachy pink awesome color!!!!
Why Should You Go? We had a fantastic time at dinner and the atmosphere is very relaxed and enjoyable. The service was excellent - attentive but not overbearing (Kyla was fantastic!). My only disappointment truly was the food. It was okay. Something was off about the burger - I'm thinking it wasn't cooked enough. I was enjoying the company so much - I didn't really check the middle. That said - I'd go back in a minute for those sweet potato fries! Spring leagues are starting up soon - so if you're up for some beach volleyball - that's one reason to go. If I was in the area - I wouldn't say no to going back - although if I was in the mood for a burger - I'd likely head to FlipDaddy's.
