I wish I would have read these reviews before going. We were there during the slow season plus a Non cruise ship day so a lot of the restaurants were closed. We found this one that appeared to be decent and went in. It was very hot inside so we sat in the back section that was a cute tree... More

This is our 2nd time there, 4 years apart. The waitress was lovely and went out of her way for us. The food was good and The Crazy Swing cocktail was DELISH! My hubby says the mudslide was also wonderful.

My wife and I went to Kangaroo Court Cafe for a nice lunch. The service was great and food was delicious. However, we used a credit card to pay for the bill after leaving the restaurant my wife noticed they added an additional $11.49 USD charge to the credit card. We had tipped the waitress 20% (using cash) and did... More

Would have rated it Excellent, however we thought the Pina Coladas were not as good as previous visits. They had been the best on the Island, but they were not as creamy or smooth this year. But I still find the wait staff friendly and the food good. We will definitely keep going back I assumed the dinning fee is... More

We have been planning our upcoming trip to St. Maartin and was looking forward to revisiting Kangaroo Court as it had been very enjoyable in the past. We came here to see how it had been rated lately and was shocked to see they are now adding a "dining fee". Needless to say, we have taken Kangaroo Court off our... More

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
