Great lunch spot

They cook everything on an open air grill, and it smells delicious! We stopped there for an early afternoon lunch. We both had the jerk chicken, which was served with a little salad, rice/bean combo and plantains (which we love). We also had a planters punch to drink - pretty good. It's an open... read more

I found out that most places shut down at 5pm on the boardwalk when the ships leave. Their is a outside grill where they cook the food. They allow people to sign their orange walls. Their sign is off to the side and covered by a palm tree. The food was very good and the people working were great.

Go where the locals go! Great frozen fruit drinks and that big barbecue isn't just for show. The food is great and served with a smile. Nice place by day and very nice music in the evening. Be sure to write your name on the wall!

My wife and I were actually looking for a spot we have visited in 2013 that had some of the best ribs in the world (we are rib nuts). Alas, it was gone. We spent half an hour scouring the Philipsburg Boardwalk for an alternative. Locals suggested this spot and it did have the requisite open air grill manned by... More

We went here at lunch during a cruise port day. We spent the day across the sidewalk at the beach. The food was AMAZING, the Internet strong and fast, the view of the beach was as good as it gets, and the price was good by St. Maarten standards. If I was to go back to St. Maarten, and I... More

We chose this place without having read any Tripadvisor reviews. A guy met us coming off the cruise ship and asked us what our plans were for the day. Two beach chairs and an umbrella for $15 for the day and we were all set. Good bar service, and the best Pina Colada's on our entire trip served up by... More

From other reviews, we decided to give this place a try and sooooo glad that we did. We took a water taxi (from cruise dock) to this stretch of beach and shops. This place was within walking distance and is located right next to a Linen shop. Open air (well--there is a roof and posts with lots of great graffiti)... More

Best ribs on the beach in Phillipsburg. We had lunch here almost every day of the week, and the food, service and drinks are good.

We love the island food, grilled on the large steel drums. We mostly go to Grand Case for to the Lolo's for this type of food. A person we met on vacation suggested we try this Caribean Blend, and we loved it. It is a small very colorful "hut" with picknic tables and chairs with a bar, and outdoor resturaunt... More
