loved the private beach

We loved using Biggs private beach! The location was great, and the patio was also wonderful. We enjoyed a few snacks, lunch and dinner here. The signature Bloody Mary (with bacon) was excellent, so was the bbq. We weren't wild about the nachos.

We stopped here for lunch after exploring the Montego Bay area of Jamaica. A great menu with some of the nicest BBQ food I've ever tasted. Jerk Chicken takes a little longer to prepare but it's totally worth the wait. The private beach was a nice touch too. Chef Biggs is a fantastic host and personally greets everyone.

Pros.... the view, the "free" beach, and the flavor of the ribs was decent. Cons... my boyfriend and I ordered a full rack of (non baby-back) ribs for $40 - which is way more than we ever spend in the states, but we're on vacation so who cares right? So when it came out already cut into 8 average sized... More

The pork was falling apart and perfectly spiced. Chicken was great too. Loved the corn bread, moist with kernels of corn. Absolutely perfect views. Right on the water. Next to doctors cave on th hip strip.

We always go to Doctor's Cave Beach and this is right next door. Service was great and food didn't take long at all. Good portions and great flavor but the best part was sitting outside overlooking the beautiful sand and beach. As a fun bonus, there is a "Cool Runnings" Jamaican bobsled you can have your pic made in!.. Completely... More

An american/jamaican barbeque restaurant / sportsbar to visit for some of the best food in MoBay. Situated close to Doctors Cave Beach. The price is average. Service is really good. Watch the sunset while dining or go inside for TV and pool.

Whilst looking for a more private beach than Aquasol we stumbled upon this restaurant which overlooks the ocean and has a small free beach attached to it. With limited time we decided to make this our lunch/beach day experience. As one should, we opted for traditional jerky but were let down. The food was not bad but it lacked that... More
