The wharf was a very fun local establishment on Seven Mile Beach, huge sprawling restaurant that doesn’t receive a shortage of guests. Their claim to fame, other than pretty good food, is feeding the Tarpon. Beautiful ocean front location the outdoor seating is phenomenal. Combined with some of the best food on the island this is a must visit in my opinion, on the commercial end of the spectrum. Of course my favorite thing about traveling is about trying the Local Fare. However you must feed the Tarpon at the Wharf, huge Tarpon sloshing around below the outdoor patio; the service staff comes out during dinner with dead fish and the Tarpon literally jump out of the water grab some of these fish. These are large sport game fish with very little desirability for eating.
My favorite local grub spot on the island was torn between two restaurants, Vivien’s Restaurant and Seymour’s. Vivien has a place right on the ocean on the East side of the island, gorgeous view, but she is cooking all the food herself so the service is lackluster at best. Go inside the house to the Kitchen to order, she doesn’t come out to serve you!
Seymour’s Jerk Chicken is a local favorite. Mine came smothered in jerk sauce and Ketchup for the fair price of 7 dollars Cayman, fantastic grub, a must stop. But this restaurant was just on the outskirts of Georgetown, a cab ride from the tourist spots…they, like many islanders, cook their chicken in Oil Drums..
