I can't believe I haven't written a review yet. We go to Get Wet on every trip when we head into Phillipsburg. The beer is always cold, the food good and Phil the owner is a great unofficial Canadian Ambassador. It is a nice place to sit under a tree and watch the birds or the people and just chill.

The Get Wet Beach Bar is a small open air bar on the beach front. They smoke their own ribs in the front of the restaurant and they are some of the best we've ever had. We went back there twice for lunch.

Get wet is a must for anyone visiting the bordwalk! The smell from the grill out front draws you in, and the relaxing vibe and cold drinks keep you there. I sat down and was greated with friendly service, and quickly had a frozen guavaberry pina colada in front of me (which was awesome). I ordered a bowl of Mammy's... More

We looked for the Get Wet Bar the day we arrived in St. Maarten because of the generally good reviews on Trip Advisor and my desire for a laid back alternative to our hotel restaurant at the Holland House. We were lucky to find the place on the boardwalk/promenade on Great Bay just a few blocks from the hotel. The... More

Was a little leery at first. But decided to try the place anyway and was not disappointed. I had BBQ ribs that were very good. The beer was cool and very affordable. The help was some what laid back but that didn't bother me. I would definitely go back.

Average bar on the boardwalk - closes down early as soon as the cruise boats are ready to leave. The staff are very friendly and the food/drinks are good, but the atmosphere dies when the boats leave. By all means try it - it is fun.

Stopped in for drink, ended up staying for more! The no frills approach and lively atmosphere makes this the place to relax on the boardwalk. The BBQ was as good as it smells walking up, the beer was cold, the service was friendly, and the shade from all the trees made it the highlight of the afternoon. Can't wait to... More

I've never written a review before but felt I had to for this place. Had the ribs which were fantastic and three or four beers. The service was so friendly by the Canadian lady. Couldn't fault the place.
