Trip Reports are always interesting to read. Newbie or veteran visitor, there's something to be learned from these accounts of stays on the island.
Rugsena's (from Waukegan) report chronicled she and her husband's return to the island, 14 years after their first visit.
They stayed at Cruz Views, a condo development overlooking Cruz Bay, up Centerline Road. They didn't cook in much, but they sure did eat out – apparently being budget conscious. Lots of 'food for thought' here.
"We went to dinner at Uncle Joe's BBQ. It wasn't as good as we remembered it."
"We ate at our favorite Italian restaurant from 14 years ago, Cafe Roma. We were so disappointed. It has changed hands and the menu has gone 'upscale' from what it was back then. We each ordered something different. Both our meals were terrible and expensive."
"We went to the Beach Bar for dinner. Tom ordered fish and chips and I ordered beer battered shrimp. Both were very good but the fries were really salty."
"We had a hard time finding an restaurant that was open on Sunday night. We finally found Castaways across from Café Roma. They serve food upstairs above their bar. We had an excellent hamburger and fries. The service was very friendly and excellent."
"We ate at Ronnie's Pizza. It was very good."
"Last night we had carryout Chinese from the Chinese carryout at the Lumberyard. It was very good."
"After coming home from the beach, we went back to Castaway's Bar for drinks and we ordered 'loaded nachos'. After we finished we were too full for dinner.
"We went into town for breakfast. We went to JJ's. It was good but too expensive."
"We went over to Candi's for Barbecue. It is a shack on the side of the road with picnic tables. Tom had chicken and I had shrimp. Both were excellent."
"We are going back to Ronnie’s for another pizza tonight. Yummy.''
