Local Places, Local Faces
Let’s go on an adventure. To Ozello. A wonderful windy drive in a sports car or motorcycle. And a beautiful view. While we are on our adventure, let’s stop for a late lunch. Normally, we’d stop at Pecks Old Port Cove. Yum! But this time we were with friends Paul and Sue—in their van—and they like to try obscure bars and restaurants. Kind of like that show on the Food Network “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives”. So we went to the Island Bar and Grill on Ozello Trail. Fun!
Now a reporter would have got the whole story about this place. But I’m just an observer. So here’s what I observed. Crazy fun décor. A very cool tiki bar in the middle of a former convenience store. Friendly server, cook, and kitchen guy.
Terry had wings. Yum! He loved them–especially since they were dry rub. I had jalapeño poppers. Double Yum! Both Sue and I also got the deep-fried fish sandwich. (I can feel my arteries clogging!) Paul had the shrimp basket—fried, of course. And island bar beer is only $1.00 all the time. Seriously. They even have free wireless.
So my advice, next time you are looking for a culinary adventure and a fun drive, stop at Island Bar and Grill. Maybe Guy Fieri will be there!
