A classical French Cafe, After nearly 20 years, Banana Café is still owned and managed by the original founders and continues to offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner the best of France in a relaxed indoor and outdoor dining overlooking fantastic Duval Street. <br />We have a beautiful french cafe upstairs who seat up to 25 dinner, and up to 50 for a cocktail party, personnel bar, private outdoor,private bathroom. From regional crepe and onion soup au gratin, to luscious Caribbean salads and country hearty sandwiches, perfect Parisian steak/frites or rare traditional specialties such as coq au vin and bouillabaisse, as well as a vast array of fresh local seafood selected every day to be grilled, sautéed, baked or roasted with a choice of unctuous sauces and accompaniments from the far corner of France: goat-cheese potato roulade, croquette of pomme de terre, Parisian gnocchi, rice pilaf

"Pleasant, friendly, quiet. Server was terrific. Scallop appetizer and duck excellent. Scallop entree did not live up to the standards of other two dishes but not bad. Will return."

Twigs uses the best and freshest ingredients possible, and specializes in a variety of dishes of the highest quality. We include our touch by adding a southern twist on many of the classic favorites, including Mountain Trout, Dungeness Crab Cakes, Filet Mignon and Duck Confit.<br /><br />Twigs supports local farmers and co-ops whenever possible. We source local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Each and every dish is prepared to order by our highly trained kitchen staff and served with a warm smile from our attentive waitstaff.

"Very good dinner- wild salmon and fish specials both very good and prepared as requested. Restaurant a tad pricey but overall experience positive enough that we look forward to returning."

B&B cooked up a unique restaurant dining experience and zest'd it with a bit of rock n roll. You can chow down in our Burger & Beer Joint Restaurant and/or high five your friends to your winning team in our Sports Bar !

"Open later than most restaurants is main reason to go. Burgers are actually good enough but vary from visit to visit. Last nights sweet potato fries dry, skimpy etc. Place is what it is which is not terribly much."

Enter as strangers…leave as friends! Storie Street Grille is a contemporary American bistro serving an eclectic mix of distinctively crafted regional flavors. Our full bar, hand selected wines and micro-brewed beers, are a great compliment to our diverse menu which focuses on local meats, sustainably harvested seafood, and seasonal produce. Come join us in our warm comfortable dining room, or relax on our covered porch, and discover why we’ve been a village favorite of locals and visitors since 2000!
