My friends and I ended up here by accident when we went to Front Street one evening and found everything closed. We were walking along the boardwalk and saw this place and were immediately drawn to it! The ambiance is completely high-end outdoor lounge and with it being the perfect night weatherwise, it was absolutely fantastic to just sit and... More

My husband and I stayed as newlyweds at the Holland House for 1 week...needless to say we had several meals there and the experience was always top notch! Each morning we had breakfast in the Ocean lounge, and it was delicious. We tried the omelettes, the pancakes, the french toast and pastries and fruit, even the cappuccino and espresso, all... More

We had drinks and dessert. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The server was very prompt, but not intrusive. She gave a great wine recommendation. The desserts were wonderful and beautifully plated. The dessert tasting plate and the lemon pie were absolutely wonderful. Definitely worth going again.

Was here yesterday for lunch and dinner. Lunch because when we do go to town we always have lunch here. The service is great, the view is beautiful and the food is delicious. My husband had the hamburger and said it is hands down the best burger in Philipsburg. I always have the tuna sashimi sandwich which I love but... More

Service is sub par - if you're not Dutch. While the food was OK - the service was mind numbingly slow. The dutch clientele had service you would come to expect for the prices. Drinks not great and bartenders surly.

Philipsburg is on the leeward side of the island. That makes it hot even on a cool day. The boardwalk restaurants are sort of stuffy and smelly. This place is high end, has a breeze as it fronts on both the boardwalk and Front street and the food is fine. Sit at the bar, it is the coolest. If not... More

Some of the best food I ate. I only wish the menu had more choices. I would have dined there every night. Great Ambience.

It's fair to say that aside from the outstanding food, the yacht-feeling this restaurant conveys really makes it worth spending an evening there. The menu is diverse and every single item has truly been delicious. As with most places, the staff is friendly and they offer great service.

We stayed at the Holland House so had breakfast at the Ocean Lounge every morning, which was great. Also had lunch once and the food was very good, plus the views of the beach and comfy seating made it a nice place to have a leisurely meal. There were always lots of patrons which seems to indicate that the restaurant... More
