Just do yourself a favor and go try the fish and chips here! I dont know what kind of batter Simon (owner) uses, but it is amazing! This is such a cool little beach bar/restaurant. You get such a great vibe just walking in the place!!! It might have something to do with the beautiful beach view right across the... More

Fun, casual atmosphere. Great service and Simon and his staff are the best. The chicken & Hamburgers are fabulous. Lots of people watching as this is right on the boardwalk of Philipsburg.

Not a bad spot for a really good burger as you stroll the boardwalk as long as you can put up with a bit of a run down place. We had a good server in the mid afternoon, but some of the help looked more interested in partying themselves! Our friends had the nachos which they loved. Good frozen, fruity... More

The Honky Tonk Bar is right on the boardwalk and on the beach. We stopped here on our cruise and spent the whole day on the beach. The Honky Tonk Bar has happy hour from 11-12 every day and the beers are $2. The food was really good and reasonable prices. The bar tending staff were really cool and lots... More

We have never tried this restaurant before and it was a great find. We stopped in for lunch and my husband and I both had nachos. He had the seafood nachos and I had the chicken. The portions of the nachos was perfect for the value and we have never had nachos with the right cheese/meat ratio before. It was... More

We heard the music from Front St. And decided to give it a try. Nice setting on the beach and boardwalk of Great Bay Beach in Phillipsburg, St..Maarten. I ordered the deep fried shrimp which was an appetizer. It was fabulous. Deep fried coconut batter shrimp with a spicy dipping sauce. Very good and reasonably priced. I will go back... More

We have enjoyed St Maarten for at least 7 times over the years starting in the early 90s. Front street has grown with the cruise ships, so we were happy to find cold beer good bar food, a nice view, at the "far end" of the "board walk". We especially liked the BLTs that had almost too much bacon. Simon... More
