We stopped by Chesterfields while waiting to go on snorkel/sailing tour. We had a great frozen drink (guava berry?), and the kids had Shirley temples. We would have hung out longer if we had the time.

The food OMG was wonderful, the best i've tasted anywhere! one of the member of my group actually went to seek out the cook to tell him how great the escargots were,... More

While it is a nice setting, overlooking the harbor, my husband and I were very disappointed in the food when we chose Chesterfields after several recommendations for our 20th anniversary dinner. I had read good reviews on the french onion soup and started out with that. My recipe is much better - theirs was bland and watery. My husband's calamari... More

We have been going to Chesterfields for 20 years (starting in 1993) and continue to go back for the food, service and view. Everything is very good. I always get the French Onion Soup for starters.

We enjoyed it very much! Food was prepared the best here. All other restaurants tended to overcook the fish somewhat.

The place is well located, nice ambiance close to the water, the staff is average though our waiter did his best to help us. The bartender was absent and one of the servers had to cover so ordering a drink was out of the question. The food was average, they really need to work on their presentation. I don't think... More

We stopped in here for lunch on a shopping day in Philipsburg. We both had the seafood platter. I had it friend, and my wife had it grilled She didn't care for the sauce that was on everything on the grilled platter. The fried was good, but nothing special. I will eat somewhere else next time. The service was ok:... More

Chesterfield's is slightly off the beaten path from downtown, making it a pleasant dining experience. They have a variety of menu options including seafood, pasta, and others. The view is great and the atmosphere fun.

The food at Chesterfield's was decent, it had a great view, but the waiters were not very friendly. Ours never looked at us when we spoke to him and never came to see how we were doing.
