Great vibe, food and AMAZING views!

Not sure why this is ranked as Nightlife in Anguilla - not even sure they open late - it is really a beach Shack - a good one with good cost/benefit ratio - we had lunch there on... read more

Fantastic food & drinks on the world's most beautiful beach. The fresh fish was amazing and the beach service was great. $12 for 2 chairs, umbrella and table. Can't go wrong here.

I have eaten here twice now on two separate vacations. The fish is super fresh. They put it over a basic salad - but that is also super fresh. My kids loved their burgers. This is a super casual place on the beach. But they have excellent food.

If you come to Anguilla, take a taxi directly for Uncle Ernie's. Wonderful food, great prices, the best beach view around. The snorkeling is amazing, just a quick swim from Uncle Ernie's. You can rent equipment for only 10 bucks, and it's also only 10 bucks for an umbrella and 2 chairs. This is a special, low-key place on the... More

If you find yourself on East Shoal Beach do yourself a favor and eat at Uncle Ernie's. The food was great and the view is unbelievable. The will provide you with 2 chairs and an umbrella for lying on the beach for the usual $20.00

I ventured over to the "new" Uncle Ernie's during our recent trip to SBE. I had read online that they had some sort of lobster sandwich and I was dying to try it. The lobster pocket did not disappoint! It was delicious. No one was at the restaurant on this day (Sunday, April 13th). There was a DJ playing some... More

Burgers and BBQ. Some salads but I went with the chicken and rib combo. Reasonably priced and easy for a day at Shoal Bay. Get a beach chair and umbrella from Ray Deman and you're good to go. Beers at Ernie's only $2.50. Nice!

On our first trips to Anguilla in 2004/2005, we absolutely loved Uncle Ernie's - great, simple food at a great price. We were a little disappointed on our last visit. First, they didn't have half of what they advertised. No crayfish, conch, etc. Luckily, they had just caught local fish, so we all got the fish sandwich. Completely mediocre. It... More
