At first, seems a bit overwhelming with all the chairs to rent right on top of each other, but once you get settled in, get your VERY POTENT drink....you'll relax quickly! Beach is great for swimming, people watching, drinking and relaxing!

The kids will always rent chairs at Le String when she is working and love how she makes her drinks!! We eat there often the food is consistant for a beach restaurant.She has become our friend over the last 3 years and... More

1000 beach chairs. Which one to rent? Alright. How about perfect view, reasonable prices, great run drinks, a constant parade of beach characters, comfortable chairs, and what!!! A delicious grilled mahi salad?? The groove of Orient Beach was perfectly captured in an afternoon at The String. Look for the Detroit Red wings Flag!

Spent the day relaxing on the beach loungers that were $18 for the 2 of us, plus it included one drink each. For lunch, I had the grilled shrimp kabobs and my wife had the chicken and shrimp combination kabobs. The shrimp were good, but the chicken kabobs were the best. Max was attentive and kept the drinks coming. The... More

We have been going to Orient Beach for years. Over 30 trips. Le String is our hangout. Last year they had a new bartender and beach boy. The beach boy was good but we sure missed Johnny. The bartender was OK. When we needed another drink we had to get her attention. Sometimes even having to walk to the other... More

Service was Ok, The mussels were great but WAYYYY to many cats around the tables, on the bar etc. I will come back again I'm sure if not but for a drink and snack. At one point the bartender was picking them up and locking them in the closest to keep them out of the way. Funky place for sure... More

Went there due to outstanding reviews. Service was mediocre, all sorts of cats wandering around and jumping on the bar, food was expensive and our least favourite meal on the island. Had some sort of battered fish app that seemed too doughy and undercooked. Place looked run down.
