The Wrecking Tree Restaurant specializes in Caribbean cooking so intriguing, some of the folks who stop by for a good meal just can't get enough. The setting here, as far as the style and level of formality, is very casual.

What's unique about the Wrecking Tree is that it was built around a huge tree known as the "Wrecking Tree" that was used in the 19th century by wreckers for shade as they looked through the loot they'd salvaged in offshore shipwrecks.

Dining takes place in an screened enclosure, which features a view of the sea.
