The service wasn't unpleasant but not really friendly either and the food was less than mediocre. Bathrooms were very clean and parking was comped. Conch fritters were mainly batter and a lot of grease (ones at Green House are much better). Alan's club sandwich was skimpy and he wasn't entirely sure about the type of meat used even though it...

this restaurant was recommended by a frequent visitor and did not disappoint. My duck was excellent. My wife had grouper and our friend had mahi mahi. All meals were cooked and sauced perfectly. As many reviewers complained about service, i must say that this was not my experience. Our server met nyc standards of excellence. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a great lunch today and was very surprised just how good the food was. I had a Fresh Fish Sandwich and my Wife and a Chicken sandwich, both served with fries, coleslaw and Pickles all for $10! When I usually order a Fresh Fish Sandwich it's soggy, served in a soggy bun and obviously not FRESH.... this was one... More

We visited Chesterfields during our St. Maarten trip. The food was just okay. Kinda reminded me of Applebee's quality food. My husband had fish and it was a fairly generous cut. I had steak, also a good portion, but not prepared all that well. We both requested our vegetables be steamed with no butter, however, they only got the message... More

During our trip last week to St Martin we dined at Chesterfield's again. The french onion soup was tasty but on the salty side. Both the seafood sampler and sauteed scallops were very good. That said, our server was not very pleasant. This was disappointing as we have been here several times in the past and always felt welcome and... More

We visited Chesterfield's on a recent trip to St Maarten, where we've vacationed about 5 times now. The location is ideal:on the outskirts of Phillipsburg, at Dock Maarten. Try to sit outside, right by the water where you can see fish swimming just below the dock. The food was so good we went twice in our 2 weeks! Especially outstanding... More

Went to Chesterfields for dinner with a group of friends in July 2011. We all ordered appetizers, and drinks. Every dish was amazing but we asked for a second order of the Hurricane Shrimp because it was so good. The staff was really friendly and accommodating of our easily excited group. It's been a year and we still talk about... More
