Great lunch and friendly service

Food was good, and service great. Split the coconut shrimp and the club sandwich. Both were excellent. Parking is a bonus!

This restaurant is just on the edge of Phillipisburg...a short walk from downtown. It is quiet and has a great dining atmosphere. The service and the menu are wonderful. The prices are actually better than a lot of the restaurants. Great fresh seafood. It also serves a great breakfast. You can watch the boats leave for the day and enjoy... More

We were down town spending the day in phillipsburg, over from Simpson bay. I cannot believe in all the years of coming to the island we had never eaten here. Amazing! The filet, New York Strip and fresh fish were out standing. Large portions , two fresh vegetables and certainly plentiful. Patricia our server was lovely. A bit shy at... More

Most relaxing atmosphere to have breakfast. The pancakes and breakfast fare was very good. I could have sat there and drank tea and looked out at the water for hours. The staff was courteous.

Having nipped into Chestfield's in the morning for a Coke, we decided to pay it another visit for dinner as our ship was berthed nearby. Firstly; an amazing setting. Sun just going down, brilliant view out over the catamarans and boats. Top marks. Our waiter - a bid dude - looked a little scary but was the perfect gentleman, especially... More

A great restaurant with an amazing view. The coconut shrimp and calamari were simply wonderful. We greatly appreciated our server chasing us down with our forgotten credit card. Overall was great from food to service.

Chesterfields is a cute little restaurant set overlooking a marina in Great Bay. It is sort of out of the way near the ferry terminal but if you have a car its worth the trip. The breakfast is pretty good and the prices are good as well. $7.95 for 2 eggs, 2 sausage links or bacon, toast and homefries in... More

Our cruise ship stopped here and planned to leave the port late and we decided to make the most of it and have an evening meal in the Town. We stumbled across Chesterfield's and thought we'd give it a try. To our surprise the place was full and although we hadn't booked a table the staff did everything they could... More

We can never get enough of the food and views at chesterfields! Amazing fish, chicken and pastas, Sit on the water, service is top notch and happy hour every day! Even when not happy hour, reasonable drink prices! We have been on the island since 1996..still a must!
