When leaving, we noticed a six dollar diming fee added to our check. We assumed it was gratuity as it was about 15% of our bill. When I questioned the waitress about it, she said it was not gratuity and she received no part of it. She said it all went to the owner of the business. She told me... More

We have been to Kangaroo Court on several occasions and have generally had average food and average service. This time we popped in for a drink and an appetizer at the bar. The bartender on this Friday afternoon was very unfriendly and seemed to be preoccupied. We ordered a couple of drinks and an order of cheese sticks. Upon paying... More

I recently was on a cruise and decided to have lunch on shore. Kangaroo Court is a delightful spot not far from the court house. Head into the restaurant and all the way back to the courtyard. A slice of heaven. A glass of wine, good food and tropical bliss. Good food, excellent service, welcoming staff. Will make a point... More

If you are near the courthouse - look for this cozy restaurant - there is a nice shady courtyard in the back which is nice for drinks and lunch/snack. Worth a visit

This little gem 2 blocks off the beach was fantastic!! The entrees where delicious, and the Pina Colada was the best I have had!! The atmosphere was also perfect, a quaint Caribbean courtyard in the back or a cozy bar area just off the street in front. I can't forget the amazing Staff!! Friendly, Fun, Informative and not afraid to... More

If you are looking for a good breakfast place, in a nice court yard......it is made for you. Before 11h00 am except on Sunday(they are close) 3 eggs, bacon,sausage,potatoes, and toast $6.00 ii is hard to beat.Just at the right of the court house. I do not cook breakfast anymore......

This was a great experience . The ownner is french speaking; we had a long discussion on various subjects with him. No rush. As the time went by, he offered us free of charge home made muffins. We did not have lunch there , it was too early for us, but the salads served at the next table looked great.... More

The food was amazing. Next time I'm in St. Martian I want to spend hours here. Feels more comfortable than home. The atmosphere is serene. My wife and I were blown away by the owners hospitality.

I have been to this place many times for coffee, and sometimes for lunch. Until now, I only left once before my order (coffee) was served but I should have left more often, since they have no problems with letting you wait for over five minutes at the bar before taking your order and again until you're being served. Sometimes... More
