Best ribs on the island

This place is a must visit! Outdoor bar and grill by the beach. Excellent ribs and cocktails. Good for a quick bite to eat, or make a night out of it.

This place is great for just simple pleasures. Great ribs and pizza on the beach. Burgers are great too! If you are more into fish, the seared tuna salad is great and you can change to caesar salad instead...no problem! The service was friendly when we were there and the waiter had some good money saving suggestions on our order... More

Fun ambiance, but large rats running on beach at night really ruin the appetite! Average bar food..., basic drinks. Decent prices.

Hi Soni, Your review and especially your title about our restaurant and bar shocks us. You are the first person to complain of "large rats running on the beach". I believe that if this was a problem, we would hear from other guests as well. We are happy to hear that you did enjoy the ambiance tho. ~Management More

Enjoyable atmosphere at night with beach fire pit. Having drinks and food on a relaxing night. Lite meal is good when we were tired of eating 3 course meals every night. You have to take pictures with the Pirate in front. Good Memories. My wife liked the jewelry a local woman had set up for sale. Necklace & bracelets to... More

Got pizza here our first night; server not overly friendly but ok; it was nice to be right on the beach. Nothing fancy. Conch Fritters were good. Reasonable prices. They light the fireballs on Friday and Saturday and you could see them from our balcony at Villas At Simpson Bay. $1 Sex on the Beach shots were good introduction to... More

Great beachside bar and outdoor restaurant, with good food. Everything is cooked just past the bar on a big outdoor bar-b-que grille. The ribs are very, very good, the pizza is also good, drinks are good and the prices are not bad. Live entertainment few nights a week. Fire pits on the beach. Everyone we came into contact with were... More
