Good food on the beach

We were in St. Maarten in off season, so you have to check with them to get their hours. We missed them a couple of times. But once we got there, good food, inexpensive and nice beach bar atmposphere

While in Phillipsburg, don't miss this little quaint fish and chip joint! Great service, wonderful food and great views. And very reasonably priced! Keep walking down the boardwalk to find this little gem!

We stopped here on about 15 recommendations for a good lunch spot with great drinks... Exactly that! The food was delicious (I had fish and chips) and the drinks were exactly what we needed!!! The owner was behind the bar and made us the perfect shot to start our girls trip vacation.

We enjoyed a terrific casual lunch at the Honky Tonk Bar on our friend's recommendation. The location is just a few steps away from the busy Front Street and Boardwalk. Will be back again next time we visit St. Maarten.

We have been stopping in here for years... quickest bartender on the island, great food, great music and a beautiful view of the ocean. It is down towards the end of the boardwalk but well worth the walk!
